    We were at the Fan Fest for the semis waiting in line for a beer in the freezing cold when a guy went up on stage and said he had a historic FF announcement to make. He said "beer and wine will be sold throughout the arena for the first time ever". We promptly got out of the line went into the arena and got a craft beer in a warm environment. Beer had only previously been available in suites at the FF. Of course, the most obnoxious drunk, screaming and whistling during his team's game, just happened to be seated behind us in the club level. Can you guess what school he was cheering for?

    No, it was not part of next season's bouncyball Final Four. Reading comprehension. Differentiate between Frozen Four and Final Four. They are two different things.

    No. It was a fan from a participating team.

    Nope. UMD fans in my section were very calm ( as much as you could have expected them to be ) cool and collected. They wanted to remember the event.

    Yes, as a matter of fact, that was my 8th FF - with most in NHL rinks, and I had never purchased beer before.

    I beg to differ.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Re: How were they aable to serve beer in St. Paul?

    In another article from the Indianapolis Business Journal I found this line: "NCAA championships in lacrosse, wrestling, volleyball and ice hockey will likely be selling beer by 2018, said sources close to the NCAA. And sports marketers think now that beer and wine will almost certainly be sold at the 2019 Final Fours." The wrestling championship was 21-23 March, the FF was 5-7 April, the men's volleyball championship will be 3-5 May and the lacrosse championship will be 26-28 May. I have no idea if alcohol was sold at the wrestling championships, but it seems that the NCAA fast-tracked alcohol sales for the Frozen Four and it will be interesting to see if the volleyball and lacrosse championships also sell alcohol.

    One other interesting line in the article was: "The sites that would be allowed to sell alcohol must already be set up to sell alcohol for non-NCAA events. For instance, you couldn’t roll out a cooler or a keg and start selling beers in a field at the NCAA cross country championship event." For the men's hockey tournament I believe all the regional sites normally sell alcohol, so I would expect them to do so starting next year. However, for some women's events, like the Frozen Four, it would depend on whether the arena hosting normally has alcohol sales. The next four will be be at the following:
    2019: TD Bank Sports Center, Hamden CT (Hosted by Quinnipiac)
    2020: Agganis Arena, Boston MA (Hosted by Boston University)
    2021: Erie Insurance Arena, Erie PA (Hosted by Mercyhurst)
    2022: Pegula Ice Arena, University Park PA (Hosted by Penn State)
    Agganis sells alcohol, so I would think BU will want to sell it in 2020. However, with the women's FF moving between arenas that sell alcohol and those that don't I have no idea how the NCAA will handle the matter.

    Because beer is the only thing that makes being in Minnesota tolerable.
