ESPN Article highlights the 21 schools that currently sell beer at on-campus stadiums. The list includes a few Power-5 Conference schools (Syracuse, West. Virginia, Louisville) and one Big Ten School Minnesota.
First hand experience has me thinking that based on what I saw at the soccer match earlier this month... That in theory this should be something on the table at all schools for consideration. Conservatively at the soccer match I would not be surprised if 50,000 (probably many more than this) beers were sold in total at $10 a beer. That would be a good amount of revenue across football, basketball, etc.
I know there are other factors and opinions out there, but from what the old timers post on this blog and from what I know from my parents... Michigan Stadium used to be BYOB.
Within the next six months or so, two bar/restaurants with plenty of craft beer options are opening in Ann Arbor. The Beer Grotto, which will specialize in craft beer and local wine is set to open in the fall, and Grand Rapids based HopCat is planning to open in January.

Aaron Morse of Dark Horse Brewing Co. is a man of esteemed character. Dare we say... a Michigan (craft beer) Man? Nickleback wants to give him money and associate his beer with their intolerable muzak. Does he give in to the soul-crushing, corporate schlock machine? No!
