Top Craft Beer Destinations to Watch International Soccer Matches
International football (soccer) season is upon us with FIFA association football tournaments in full swing. Each tournament is played every four years, offset by the FIFA World Cup, scheduled to take place in 2022. However, due to the pandemic, tournaments were rescheduled to take place this summer.
Here’s a quick breakdown of each association and their tournament:
- The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA): Euro 2020 – final to be held this Sunday
- South America (CONMEBOL): Copa America – final to be held this Saturday
- North and Central America (CONCACAF): The Gold Cup – currently in group stage play
As always, our picks include spots that met these three criteria:
Enthusiasm for the game. These folks love soccer and it’s evident by the crowds they draw and the electric atmosphere during the game. No one wants to be the only one cheering with a painted face.
Play matches with the sound on. Nothing worse than staring at an intense game while DJ music pumping all around you.
Serves craft beer. This one does not require an explanation.
