For many fans, one of the best parts about going to NFL games is getting loud and drinking beer. But, it comes with a price, particularly in Green Bay. Packers fans have to resort to draining their wallet on beers at Lambeau Field, specifically, $8.25 for a 16-ounce domestic beer. That’s expensive anywhere you go, especially in Wisconsin, a state that takes pride in their beer, and of course, cheese.
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers disagrees with the high price point and wants it lowered for a fantastic reason: to get fans louder.
“I’m up for anything that’s gonna get the fans as loud as possible. Maybe slash some beer prices or something, would be a good idea,” Rodgers said to reporters on Wednesday via Pro Football Talk.
The Packers pride themselves on home-field advantage, but since 2017, it hasn’t been as advantageous as before. Though the team has a winning record at home in the last two years (9-6-1), the Packers are already experimenting with how to return it into a menacing place to play.
In last week’s 28-26 preseason win against the Houston Texans, the Packers decided to try to ramp up the noise with something new. They used a foghorn, which according to Packers Wire’s Zach Kruse, didn’t play too well with the fanbase.
Packers new head coach Matt LaFleur is looking for ways to get a better advantage at Lambeau Field.
He said, per Kruse, “I just want anything that is going to get fans out of their seat and make [Lambeau Field] a true advantage. I don’t care what it is. If you’ve got an idea, we’ll take it.”
Well, it looks like his quarterback has an idea.
