Fort Lewis looks at serving beer at campus grill
DURANGO, Colo. – Fort Lewis College is considering serving beer and wine in its student union, even though a city rule in Durango prohibits alcohol service at schools.
The college would have to seek a waiver from the city rule, and the city would have to approve a liquor license that the college’s food service contractor plans to seek for a grill inside the College Union Building.
A City Council hearing on the waiver request is set for July 1.
Fort Lewis served 3.2 percent-alcohol beer on campus until 1988. College spokesman Mitch Davis says college officials weighed the pros and cons of serving alcohol again and support not having students driving downtown to drink and then driving back to campus.
