Raise a glass for the reserve fund.

If you’re looking for another tell regarding beer sales at Sanford Stadium, check out this coy answer from Greg McGarity.

Will Georgia raise a glass for the sale of chardonnay or local craft-beer like Terrapin or Creature Comforts while fans cheer on the Bulldogs?

Not right now, but athletic director Greg McGarity didn’t rule out what could happen in say five or ten years.

“Who knows?” he said. “There’s a risk and reward in all of that. It’s just something that has not been an issue for us right now. We have not gone down that route. Who knows what will happen as far as revenue opportunities?”  [Emphasis added.]

Actually, we all know what happens as far as revenue opportunities go, Greg.  You’re just waiting for the right amount of cover against the inevitable clucking.  Sooner or later, I know you’ll find the right moment.

    The only thing that outright bothers me about it is the Hipocrisy in their stance. Couple that with my age and not wanting my young son around drunken idiots at a game, and I’m all for it never happening. I like a few drinks on game day as much as the next guy…. But my tee totaling days are over. I like the idea of indulging at the tailgate and being able to focus on the game. I’m fine with those that want to get loaded as long as it doesn’t affect me… Particularly during the game where I can’t go find another seat. That’s just me though

      Yes, because there isn’t a plethora of drunken idiots in Sanford currently… I’m not trying to be an, but isn’t it a good opportunity to teach him what NOT today?

        At some point, yes but not at 4 years old, nor do I need to sacrifice a fun day out just to have a teachable moment. As for the quantity of drunkards currently in Sanford at games, I’m betting it goes up with the ability to keep the party going from outside the stadium, so it’ll be a lot more prevalent.

    Terrapin? Good luck with that. It’ll be one of the huge corporate beers willing to spend big $ on “sponsoring” the Dawgs.
