Dayton Signs Bill Allowing Beer at U-of-M Stadium

ST. PAUL (AP) — Governor Mark Dayton has signed a bill that’s likely to be a big hit with Gopher football fans who will now be able to drink a beer at TCF Bank Stadium.

Dayton signed the bill Friday, a few days after it passed the state House and Senate by large majorities. It lets the university obtain a liquor license for the stadium as long as sales are open to the general public.

Bill sponsors say they expect the legislation will result in a beer garden at the stadium’s open west end that operates each game until the end of halftime.
