Beer sales at Ohio State University home football games crossed the $1 million mark in the stadium’s first year allowing alcohol sales. Revenue totaled $1.1 million for the 2016 home season, according to the university. Sales had totaled $412,000 for the first three games, or an average of $137,333. The new figures include four additional games, including the season-ender against the University of Michigan, raising the total average to $157,142 a game. Money from beer sales goes toward increased security, including four new OSU police officers, and toward an alcohol and substance abuse center. -Tom Knox, Columbus Business First, Read More
