The Univ. of Washington will "offer beer and wine" at Alaska Airlines Arena for men's and women's basketball games this season for the first time, according to Percy Allen of the SEATTLE TIMES. UW AD Jen Cohen said that the expansion of alcohol sales "came at the request" of fans. UW becomes the sixth Pac-12 school to offer alcohol at basketball games. Adult beverages will be "served in cans and plastic cups to any patron who is of legal drinking age and can provide proper identification." The school will "offer Coors Light, Red Hook, Corona and Bale Breaker." Alcohol sales will "stop at the end of the third quarter for women's basketball and around the 10-minute mark in the second half for men's basketball." UW has sold beer/wine at football games and at Husky Ballpark since '14 and at Husky Softball Stadium since '18 (SEATTLE TIMES, 10/17).
