Winston-Salem, NC - Wake Forest University announced today the introduction of the Top Hat Tavern, a new addition to the game day experience at BB&T Field. Located behind the video board and Deacon Hill on the South side of the stadium, the Top Hat Tavern will make beer and wine available to the general public at football games.

The Top Hat Tavern joins Deacon Tower and Bridger Field House as the third area within BB&T Field to offer beer and wine sales to patrons. Soft drinks and water will also be available within the Tavern.

The consumption of beverages will be limited to the Top Hat Tavern area. There will be a limit of three drinks per person and all patrons will have their ID checked by Wake Forest and Winston-Salem police officers. Patrons will be given a wristband to verify eligibility to enter the area and also to note the number of beverages purchased.

“We are always looking to enhance the game day experience for all of our fans,” said Director of Athletics Ron Wellman. “We feel we have a service model that will be controlled and responsible.”

The Top Hat Tavern will open 90 minutes prior to kickoff and will close at the end of the third quarter of each home game.

Wake Forest is part of a growing trend nationally with over 30 Football Bowl Subdivision teams now offering alcohol sales to its football fans.

Tickets for Saturday night’s game with Gardner-Webb are available at the Ticket Office or on-line at Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at BB&T Field.
