Packers QB Aaron Rodgers urges Lambeau Field to cut beer prices
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.
