PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - The company that provides food and beverage services for Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence has asked the city’s Board of Licenses to permit them to sell beer at the zoo.

WPRI-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2620RCa ) the proposal from Centerplate states that the company would like to set up a tent next to the zoo’s Wilderness Cafe and begin charging $6 for 16-ounce cans of Miller Lite and Corona as well as $7 for draft beer from the Union Station Brewery year-round.

Under the proposal, the tent would also sell bottled water in addition to hot dogs, pretzels and other snack options.

Centerplate will limit customers to purchasing one beer each and has projected $19,000 in annual beer sales.

A spokesman for Mayor Jorge Elorza says the city is considering the request.
