Beer to be served at Pro Football Hall of Fame game and enshrinement ceremony for first time

CANTON, Ohio — The Pro Football Hall of Fame says beer will be served for the first time at the northeastern Ohio venue’s annual enshrinement festival.

Joe Horrigan, communications and exhibits vice president for the Canton facility, says selling beer serves as a potential revenue generator and a way to enhance the ceremony and preseason game.

Dave Motts, the hall’s senior vice president of corporate and community engagement, tells The Repository for a story Thursday the beer will be sold by the can but served in plastic cups.

Canton City Schools, which owns Fawcett Stadium, granted permission for the sales as part of its long relationship with the Hall of Fame.

The annual festival takes place the first weekend of next month.
