Austin FC fans are gearing up for what is anticipated to be another exciting season. After a challenging inaugural season, the team turned everything around in 2022, resulting in a historic season that ended up landing Austin FC a spot in the 2023 CONCACAF Champions League for the first time. Sell-out crowds at Q2 stadium are likely to be the norm this season, so here are some of our picks for craft beer destinations to catch matches around town.

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. There is nothing worse than staring at an intense game while DJ music is pumping all around you.

Serves craft beer. This one does not require an explanation.
