Have a Drink
The exciting news on the beer front at Fenway Park in 2008 is that the team has reintroduced vendors to the stands for the first time in three decades, or at least a small portion of the stands. Vendors are now hawking beer and wine (wine?) to the lucky folks in the field box and dugout seats, which make up about 4,000 seats. The Sox appear to be testing the waters on this and seeing how folks in these pricey sections react before deciding on an expansion. So far no one has ripped off their shirt and run on the field to hug a player.
The lack of vendors in most seating areas doesn’t score Fenway any points among beer lovers, but the truth is there are so many concession stands offering the stuff you shouldn’t have to head far when thirsty. Sox fans have been so long without they don’t seem to mind (hopefully other parks don’t get any ideas).
Budweiser and Bud Light are the leading mainstream beers on hand, and premium brews like Guinness, Bass, Harp, Heineken, Sam Adams and Presidente, from the Dominican Republic, are also available. Harpoon IPA on tap can’t be beat. Expect lines at these specialty stands, so grab one on your way to your seats so you know the lay of the land, and expect to pay over $7 a pop. There are also frozen margaritas at some stands.
There’s a two-drink maximum per sale, and last call is two and a half hours after the start of the game or, according to signs around the park, “at stadium manager’s discretion.”
