The next time you take in an Ohio State football game, you might just have a couple more refreshment options than you had the last time you were there.

After an evidently successful pilot program selling beer on only the suite level of Ohio Stadium, Ohio State stadium operations and athletics announced Wednesday that beer would be available stadium wide at fall football games during the 2016 season.

Funds from the sales will also go towards research done by the Ohio State University Higher Education Center for Alcohol and Drug Misuse Prevention and Recovery aimed towards enhancing prevention effort.
