True enough, but those bench seats provide no room for beer. They don't even provide room for your arms!
That's why I always look for seats in the last row if I am stuck with the benches. I love standing and having room to put all my stuff.

All I ask is that the beer stands are in the corners of the open concourse so people in line don’t miss any of the action

That's what we did when we were going to Gampel games. The wall was kind of like a chair back.

I'd love to see them spotlight/offer beers from CT breweries who have ties to UConn (UConn grads as brewers, owners).

Some examples off the top of my head (there are others, also):

-Tox Brewing
-Great Falls
Half Full Brewery out of Stamford. I believe the owner/brewmaster received his MBA at UConn.

With the Husky Hops coming out, has there been any confirmation from administration for beer sales at Gampel this season? I didn't see anything personally, but wondering if any of you guys did.

From Kingsman Brewing website:

Husky Hops will be available at concession stands at Pratt & Whitney Stadium at Rentschler Field (including special kiosks located in the UConn Alumni section of the stadium) as well as a kiosk at the entrance to the Gampel Pavilion and at concession stands at the XL Center and across multiple sports, including baseball, soccer and hockey. Additionally, the new brand will be sold at all on-campus facilities that sell beer.

No more stuffing nips into the ole' prison wallet?

You can do whatever your heart desires, but putting them in my pants pockets always worked for me. It's not like they're patting people down at the door.

EDIT: This is, of course, speaking hypothetically, if I were the type of person to bring nips into a game, which I am definitely not.

UConn going full in on the beer craze. I wonder if they'll be selling this at games.

TwoConn is the new collaborative beer between UConn Athletics and Two Roads Brewing Company in Stratford.

According to Kat Manning, Social Media & Content Creator for Two Roads, more details will be available at a later date for when the new beer will be packaged and distributed.

It depends on if you are walking through metal detectors. The metal detectors at MSG are pretty damn sensitive. the cheap metal caps of my cuervo silver nips rang that sucker up once. So in those instances you search for nips with plastic caps.

Didn't need any of this at the Field House. They would let the crowd outside at halftime to 'smoke cigarettes'. We'd hide a pint in the snow.

they never checked kids (under 15) going into the Field House
One of my friends used to have his younger brother carry a pint in his pants
