The North Carolina General Assembly passed some alterations to its ABC laws on Tuesday, and in so doing may have opened the door for alcohol sales at Carter-Finley Stadium. You can read the entire bill here if you want. The requirements laid out for legal alcohol sales at sports venues are the important bits, though:
Sports and entertainment venue. – Stadiums, ballparks, and other similar facilities with a permanently constructed seating capacity of 3,000 or more which are not located on the campus of a school, college, or university.
This would seem to clear the way for booze, booze, and more booze! Unless by some technicality Carter-Finley qualifies as an on-campus venue.
You may be wondering if NC State’s administration is on board with potential alcohol sales on the concourses at Carter-Finley (you can already get your fix in Vaughn Towers, if you are fortunate enough to have the access), but worry not, the answer is yes:
We have already stated that we will sell beer and wine to those in the seating bowl whenever it becomes legal to do so.— #1 state fan (@gopacknow) June 26, 2018

So, yes. Beer? Beer. Soon? Maybe! Get to work on your acting and fake I.D. presentation, underage students!
