Wally the Beer Man gets a gig for playoffs

MINNEAPOLIS – The vendor known as Wally the Beer Man will be selling suds during the Minnesota Twins playoff run after all, but not at Target Field.

He has been suspended for being one of eight vendors cited for selling alcohol to underage fans during Thursday night’s Twins home game against Toronto.

WCCO-TV reports Sunday that Wally will be selling to the bar crowd at Sneaky Pete’s in downtown Minneapolis during the home playoff ogames.

Wally, whose real name is Walter NcNeil, says it’s not like being at Target Field, but it beats sitting at home and watching the game on television.

Wally is an institution at Twin Cities sports events. He tells the station it’s the first time he’s been cited in his 40 years of work.
