Dayton to Sign Bill Easing Beer Sales at TCF Bank

ST. PAUL  (AP) — Cheers! A bill to ease beer sales at the University of Minnesota’s football stadium is on the cusp of becoming law.

A spokeswoman for Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton says he plans to sign the bill. The House easily passed it on Monday on a vote of 115-13. The Senate previously passed the bill 55-3 and the school’s Board of Regents supports it too.

The bill lets the university obtain a liquor license for TCF Bank Stadium as long as sales are open to the general public. The bill’s sponsor says he expects it to result in a beer garden at the stadium’s open west end, where taps would flow until the end of halftime.

The bill includes a provision requiring at least one Minnesota-brewed beer be sold at the stadium.
