Lucky for me CCB is on tap at the Rays games here in Tampa.
Wow, didn't know Celtic games were dry. That is horrible news.
Do they change that rule for big UEFA events?
Citizen Bank Park, home of the Phillies, does have a good craft selection all around the ballpark, but most especially in and around Ashburn Alley. They have a lot of local/regional craft like Yards, Victory, Dogfish, Flying Fish, Troegs, etc.
PPL Park, home of the MLS' Union, also has a good craft selection, again mirroring what what CBP does and going with a strong local contingent. Even the Susquehanna Center across the river in Camden, NJ has upgraded their beer selection by leaps and bounds the past couple years. Once more, loads of local beers but I also had a Lagunitas IPA when I went to either Mumford and Sons or The Killers this past year. But easy to find local craft beers.
I've only been the The Linc (Lincoln Financial Field, home of the Eagles) a few times and their selection was decent but hard to track down a good beer station. I remember having Guinness there, but also remember thinking they need to step up their selection like CBP. It has been over a year since I've been there.
The Wells Fargo Center, home of the Flyers/Sixers, also needs to step up their craft selection, though like the Linc it's been over a year since I've been there for a Flyers game or a concert. Their craft beer stations are hard to find. Even in the VIP boxes (got lucky once and scored tix for The Police in one of the suites) only had cans of BMC, Heiny and Corona. I had to walk around the concourse to find a stand with Sierra PA, Sam Adams and Smithwicks. Best I could find. The ground floor bar had Red Hook and some of the other InBev 'craft' beers. They used to have a small brewpub inside, Red Bell, but I have heard it's no longer there.
Bryant Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, AL. Alcohol sold: none. Alcohol available: whatever liquor I decide to smuggle into the stadium in a flask.
PNC Arena in Raleigh has a decent selection for the Hurricanes games as well as concerts. There's one dedicated Foothills bar/alcove with 4 taps (normally Hoppyum, People's Porter, Torch Pilsner, and Pilot Mountain Pale) and then scattered stands with Foothills/Cottonwood and usually an Aviator selection or two. Nothing spectacular but totally serviceable in the grand scheme of things. I love Foothills so the PNC selection gets an above-average rating from me.
I think you can drink in the corporate and hospitality areas, but not in the normal seats, you'll be limited to soft drinks.
I seem to remember being able to get a Sam Adams for $12 or something at Turner Field. BMC is like $8 for a 16 oz at the GA Dome.
I love ATL, but not for this =/
The GSO Grasshoppers have Natty Green stuff, really not much better than BMC though. Being a Phillie fan I have to 2nd the CBP beer selection mentioned, they've made great strides every year.
I went to a Pawsox game and was thrilled to find, buried, a local beer stand with Foolproof, Revival and even beautiful Gansett.
I can not say enough about Rhinegeist and at the other end of the stadium Madtree, Cincinnati is really starting to awaken these lack of beer taste people and I love it.
We have a Foothills Brewing bar in the outfield of our Minor League Baseball Team.
