Draft beer is far from your only option when visiting popular drinking spots.

Prices range from $7.75 for premium canned or bottled beers to $14 for frozen drinks in souvenir cups or premium draft beer in mason jar.

You can also get wine and all kinds of beer,from domestic to imports. Alcohol sales in most areas end at the end of the 7th inning or third quarter of a football event. Public intoxication, is a Class C misdemeanor,but when intoxicated fans are issued tickets near the stadiums,they usually are arrested - unless there's a sober friend or family member there to take them home.

Consumed in mass quantities- Alcohol in Texas is big business, not surprisingly, as the state's population grows so does alcohol sales. In Tarrant County where the population has grown from 1,682.034 in 2007 to 1,966,440 in 2017 an increaseof 17% alcohol sales have soared.

Ten years ago, sales were $4 billion across the state of Texas, in 2016 they were up to $6.4 billion- an increase of 62.5% AT&T Stadium is the top venue and the most drinks more than $11.7 billion over the last 10 years were sold in Harris County.

Drinking is not for everyone their are those who attend sporting events and concerts that never drink,and say they have more fun not drinking and can remember what they did the next day.  Jorge Velez of Keene attends Dallas Cowboys and Texas Rangers baseball games and  is one of the many who simply attend the event and not take a drink of alcohol while enjoying the event.
