WVU: 1st beer sold at football games to cost $7-9

Posted:

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia football fans can buy beer at home games for $7 to $9 a pop this fall, depending on whether it's a domestic, import or locally made craft brew.

Athletic Director Oliver Luck announced Thursday that Anheuser-Busch, MillerCoors and Morgantown Brewing Co. will supply the suds in 51 locations for the first time at Mountaineer Field.

Concession operator Sodexo says it will stop sales when there are 7 1/2 minutes of playing time left in the third quarter. This week, it's training 500 people in how to manage the sales, ID checks and intoxicated fans.

Mainstream beer will be sold in plastic bottles, and the craft beer in 16-ounce cups.

There won't be any hawkers in the stands. Nor will a sales point be set up in the student section.
