Beer Prices Could Increase at MetraPark

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

You could soon pay more for beer at MetraPark.

Commissioner John Ostlund says the Billings Breakfast Exchange Club and MetraPark Advisory Board presented a proposal to increase the cost by a dollar for draft beer and beer in aluminum cans. 50 cents of that increase would be earmarked for a co-promote fund.

MetraPark has traditionally been for rent only, but this year commissioners began looking at the possibility of co-promoting concerts with show promoters.

Commissioners will vote on the beer increase at their regular meeting tomorrow. If it passes, the increase would take effect immediately.
