The beer will not be flowing in Martin this weekend

Expanded alcohol sales delayed again.

Thirsty WSU fans will once again not have access to proposed expanded beer sales for this weekend’s match-up with Idaho. The Washington liquor control board (who when not checking for fake ID’s in Pullman bars regulate these sort of things) has not agreed to finalize WSU’s plan for expanded alcohol sales as first reported by pullmanradio.com.

Agency spokesman Brian Smith says the request would set a "new precedent" in Washington regarding beer sales at college sports venues. WSU’s plan would be the first of it’s kind in the state.

WSU wants to be able to sell beer in all areas in Martin Stadium with the exception of the student section. Alcohol is currently only allowed in the club levels. The school was hoping to generate one million dollars in revenue with this plan, but now has lost out on two home games at least. Hopefully by the time the Oregon Ducks roll into town, the LCB will have approved this plan and Cougar fans will be able indulge in such offerings as Blue Moon and Summer Shandy. WSU stand-by’s Coors Light and Miller Lite will be available for the more nostalgic crowd. The only caveats for this plan for the Crimson nation are the afore-mentioned student section and no re-entry into games.
