If you enjoyed BC’s expansion of alcohol sales last year at BC football, men’s basketball and men’s ice hockey games, boy do I have some good news for you.

Boston College Athletics announced Tuesday afternoon that beer and wine sales will continue for the 2018-19 season.

In addition to the points of sale from last season, the department announced that additional points of sale will be implemented in response to feedback from fans.

Sam Adams, Harpoon IPA, and Bud and Bud Light will be offered in addition to cider, and red and white wine.

“We’re excited to continue offering this expanded service to our fans,” BC Director of Athletics Martin Jarmond said in the release. “We received great feedback last year that this opportunity enhanced our game-day experience.”

Beer and wine sales are now available in one-third of FBS college football venues.

This is obviously good news: beer and wine sales throughout the stadium were a welcome addition last year, and, despite some hiccups in terms of crowds, worked out well. The addition of new points of sale coupled with expanded offerings of beer will only make the experience better.

Now the only question is, which cider offerings will be available? In terms of local availability, Downeast Cider is by far and away the best cider available. Reasonable minds and have differing, totally incorrect opinions to the contrary. It is local, and delicious, and popular in the City of Boston. However, the odds on favorite, in this writer’s opinion, is Angry Orchard, given the sale of Sam Adams.

The answer, however, will have to remain unanswered until Saturday.
