If there''s a rain delay before the 7th inning, how long will they continue to serve beer? The very amusing IT guys on the other side of the cube wall from me are pondering that question. So of course I'm referrring this to the WSI experts :gulp:
(And this has nothing to do with the fact I'm going the game tonight)

depends on the rain delay... pretty sure they cut off sales at 9-9:30

I was told 10:30p. No matter the inning.

Does that depend on the game start? Especially since Friday games start later.

Every ballpark reserves the right to stop serving beer at any time depending on the mood of the crowd. My one-time boss told me he went to a game in Milwaukee against the Sox where beer sales were cut off in the second because things were getting out of hand.

No, they were pouring for a while, but shut it down later on. I couldn't tell you the exact time, but they didn't just shut off the taps the minute it started raining.

Yeah, I was getting beer till about 9:30 that night from the regular vending places, and they served for another hour or so after that in the Bullpen bar.

It's too bad we can't get that done altogether for the Crosstown. I think it would be a lot easier for we humble, working-class Southsiders to get tickets then.

As did I, I'm think I bought my last beer or beers around 10:30ish, maybe a little before that.

They serve beer to those kids up there?

I was at the opener and I'm 100% certain that they stopped selling beer at 10:00 PM (at least in the upper deck). I asked a bunch of vendors about the policy and everything and they said 10 o'clock. Hope this helps.
