    Default Local brewer is taking its craft to WVU fans

    Local brewer is taking its craft to WVU fans

    Friday, August 26, 2011

    West Virginia athletic director Oliver Luck said he wanted a local presence in Milan Puskar Stadium this fall. A local brewery will provide just that.

    Morgantown Brewing Co.'s craft beer will be sold during Mountaineers home games this season. It's one of three brewing companies whose products will be available to fans.

    "We're barely in our second year of operation, and to be able to showcase a product we're really proud of on arguably the biggest stage in the state, that's a great opportunity," said Art Gallagher, the brewery's founder and co-owner.

    Sodexo, West Virginia's food-service provider, approached the brewery about three months ago regarding selling craft beer at home games.

    Two types of beer will be available for the first home game against Marshall on Sept. 4: Old Morgantown Amber Ale and Zack Brown's Pale Ale. The company could rotate on a game-by-game basis the beers that are sold.

    Morgantown Brewing's beer will be available at only two locations in the stadium and will be served in plastic cups.

    Sodexo ordered 25 kegs of each beer.

    "It's by far our largest order," Gallagher said. "It's a pretty big deal. For the first year, any income we see from this will go back into production so we have a capability to maintain the order, our in-house and our distribution."

    Anheuser-Busch and MillerCoors beers also will be available. Anheuser-Busch said Budweiser, Bud Light and Michelob Ultra will be sold at games.

    Sodexho has not set the prices, but a beer cost between $7 and $9.
