"The model for the garden was based on a model used by minor league baseball, and (we expanded it) by adding a children's area with face painting and bounce houses," Sewell says.
He says that the Millsaps Beer Garden operates as a controlled location for adults to enjoy a beer during home games.
"... We believe our arrangement provides an ongoing model of mature and accountable drinking for persons of legal age," Sewell says.
Those who want to drink beer must show identification to get beer, and the area takes cash or card. No beer is sold in the stands.
All beers are $5 per cup, and some are on tap; however, certain beers are available in cans. In addition to two to three selections for beer, primarily from Lucky Town Brewing Company, the beer garden also has food and more. The beer garden is only open for home
