Texas State University will sell beer, wine at some sporting events


SAN MARCOS, Texas (KXAN) — Another Central Texas university is adding alcohol sales at athletic games to its revenue stream. Starting in February, Texas State University in San Marcos will start selling beer and wine at home games at the Bobcat softball and baseball games. Softball opens its season at home on Feb. 12 and baseball plays its first home series beginning Feb. 19.

A spokesperson for the university says the beer and wine selections are being determined by the school’s third-party vendor, Chartwells, which Texas State contracts with for concessions. Prices are expected to be $6 for beer and $8 for wine (both of which will be served in plastic bottles).

The university will limit the number of alcoholic beverages that can be purchases as well as ending sales after a certain inning.

“A lot of us like to drink here at Texas State so we will enjoy a good beer and a baseball game,” says Texas State senior John Little.

The university has not decided if they will expand alcohol sales to any other Bobcat sporting events at this time.

In February of 2014, the University of Texas at Austin started selling beer and wine at basketball, baseball and softball games. The university expanded its alcohol sales to football games this past season.
