Brewers reverse decision, will stop alcohol sales after 7th inning
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- After extending alcohol sales until the end of the 8th inning for about a month, the Milwaukee Brewers have reversed their policy back to after the 7th inning -- according to mlb.com.
“We’ve got two homestands under our belts and there have not been any serious issues with general behavior related to the extended sales,” club spokesperson Tyler Barnes said. “But what we’ve found is that the amount of time we’ve extended it by averages it out to 15 minutes extra. Because it’s late in the game, the sale of alcohol and all concessions drops off a cliff once you get to the eighth inning. The amount of sales we were experiencing was just not significant.”
The new, old rule begins Monday night, when the Brewers take on the Dodgers at AmFam Field.
