    I am planning a tailgate and was planning on bringing Kegs...Does anyone know if they are prohibited at Sports Authority Field. I feel like at Broncos games they are not but being this a college game, I'm not sure if its different. Anyone know either way with certainty?

    Thanks!
    Go Buffs!

    We had a pony keg last year and had no problems. (Other than the tap getting clogged with sediment and we couldn't pour beer)

    We have since gotten tools to clean out the tap should this happen again.

    back in the day, it was alleged that a wheel chair fitted with a keg underneath (with panels to cover it) was frequently rolled into folsom. it was allegedly parked in the special access area right above the student section and guarded by a well-trusted student in the chair. so i am told.

    allegedly.

    B4L had a post on Facebook yesterday about their tailgate in lot C and it said no kegs allowed and DPS would take your taps.

    The Denver Broncos Tailgating rules states no Kegs or Glass Bottles. I have had both multiple years in a row and even had DPD stop by once for an undercover ID check. As long as people aren't being obnoxious you can probably get away with it.

    I've had DPD tell us to move the booze so it's not out in plain sight (why that matters is still beyond me), but they never tell me I can't have it.

    It matters because they don't want to take some crap from a supervisor. But they personally probably like to tailgate and have a few drinks themselves when they get a chance, so they don't want to piss on other peoples' fun.

    My experiences with DPD have been similar. Don't cause trouble and they will typically leave you alone. Had a couple guys come by and chat with us, they were quite tempted to share a beer when offered haha. They know that if they don't piss off the drunk fans during the tailgates, the less likely they are to have issues later.

    We had two kegs at a Broncos game a few years ago. Cops stopped by and said that they couldn't allow us to have them out in plain sight. They were very careful to say that the "didn't want to see them". We put them under our food table - which had a plastic cloth that covered them - and ran the lines up through the corners of the cloths. Same cop came by later and just gave us a knowing smile.

    In other words, just be cool and keep it out of site and you should be fine.

    No certainty. It is against the rules and if you have someone who decides to enforce it you may be shut down. A couple of years ago a guy a few spots down from us in Lot C had the cops shut down his tailgate because of kegs. If you have a bunch of younger people around your tailgate you are subject to more scrutiny.

    Good point. I think the cops also treat this game differently than a Broncos game.

    Never been able to tailgate at a Bronco's game, but the DPD has always been pretty lax in my interactions with them at the RMS.

    I would think more strict. I think most of the cops are Broncos fans themselves, so they try to be as cool as possible. I am basing all of this on a relatively small sample though.

    In other words, what the **** do I know?!

    Tailgating at Bronco games I have never seen DPD walking around dressed for a riot.

    The Broncos are big money for the City of Denver and no way would they give people crap at a Broncos games, unless they were really doing something unlawful. I have a friend who has a huge RV that tailgates for every Bronco game. They have kegs and not once have I seen anyone say anything.

    CU/CSU game, I would give it a 50/50 chance that you see DPD.

    Just cover the kegs with something. I doubt anybody will pay much mind as long as it's civil.
