Tuscaloosa City Council approves liquor sales at Bryant-Denny Stadium

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WIAT) — The Tuscaloosa City Council on Tuesday approved the proposed liquor sales at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

The votes were cast at a city council meeting on Tuesday. The stadium’s liquor license passed by a vote of 4-1.

It comes six months after the city council approved the sale of alcohol at Coleman Coliseum.

Certain provisions have been made by the board to limit the consumption of underage alcohol by those attending games at Bryant-Denny, including:

  • Ask everyone who buys alcohol to verify their identity
  • All service workers will be required to complete a two-hour service course
  • Tag everyone at check-in before games to see who is 21
  • The cut-off time for purchasing alcohol will be at the end of the 3rd term

The Southeastern Conference lifted a ban on the sale of alcohol in public seating areas of on-campus stadiums in 2019, leaving the final decision to universities.

The proposal now awaits state approval.
