ASU announces keg ban at football tailgating parties

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (KSAZ) - A big change is on the way for ASU and people will really notice it at Sun Devil football games.

In an average keg of beer, you can get about 165 12-ounce cups of beer out of it.

ASU is doing something that the University of Arizona and Northern Arizona University have already done. Banning beer kegs at football tailgating parties.

What's the problem with the keg? There's so much beer that it's easy to overdo it.

"So we really wanted to make sure people are smart about what they are drinking and to actually kind of visualize it," said Maggie Emmons.

What's the idea behind the beer keg ban? It is thought, if you have to drink individual cans or bottles of beer instead of a cup after cup out of a keg, you'll be able to keep better track of just how much you've had to drink.

"What we really want to do is make sure our fans that come, the consummate tailgaters who do it the right way, we're ensuring their safety," said Emmons.

What do fans have to say? Plenty.

"Well, somebody will benefit, more cans, or one keg. The same amount at the end of the day," said Dwayne Wallace. FOX 10 asked Wallace if he thought it would make a huge difference; he replied: "hell no, they will still bring it in."

"I think it would be less crazy, but restricting does not get rid of it altogether, so it would be hard to control unless you were confiscating completely," said Haley Hanson.

"I think that it will make people angry, but make them more responsible, so they don't drink too much more safe for the community," said Tom Kaufman.
