Texas A&M announced Thursday that it will sell beer and wine in general seating areas at Kyle Field starting this fall. The Aggies become the first SEC program to announce that it will sell limited alcohol to the public since the SEC lifted its conference-wide ban on such sales last month.
"This is another way we are enhancing the amenities at Kyle Field," said interim athletic director R.C. Slocum. "We are extending the availability of alcohol beyond the premium areas which have had this option for many years. Fans, 21 and older, will have the option to purchase alcohol, regardless of seating area."
The new guidelines passed by the SEC at spring meetings mandate that alcoholic beverages can only be available at designated stationary locations, and they won't be sold by vendors in seating areas. Service will be cut off at the end of the third quarter of football games.
