It will be easier to grab a cold one in Tiger Stadium this fall.

LSU announced Thursday sales of beer and wine will expand to public areas of Tiger Stadium, though concession stands near the student section will not sell alcohol.

The move comes after the SEC adopted new policies allowing for beer and wine sales in public areas of athletic venues.

“This is all about enhancing the fan experience, responding to the feedback from our fans and doing it responsibly,” LSU Athletic Director Scott Woodward said. “It’s a big addition to our events and we believe it will be a positive one overall, but we are going about it with the appropriate mindset and thorough planning.”

Per LSUsports.net, here is the LSU Athletics Policy and Code of Conduct for Sale of Alcoholic Beverages:

Alcoholic Beverage Policy

No more than two alcoholic beverages may be purchased per transaction.
Alcoholic beverages must be poured into a cup.
A valid ID is required for each transaction.

Alcohol sales will end at the conclusion of the third quarter of the game for football.

Unruly, disruptive or illegal behavior.
