Top Craft Beer Destinations to Watch the World Cup
The United States Women’s Nation Soccer Team takes the stage on July 21 as the reigning champions of the FIFA Women’s World Cup. The tournament kicked off on July 20 and is taking place in Australia and New Zealand this year, which means many of the matches will take place overnight for fans in Texas.
Here are a few things you should know in a nutshell:
#1 – We are awesome. We are literally the number-one team in the world.
#2 – This tournament only happens every four years and only lasts a couple of weeks. So get out there and show your support for the Women’s National team!
#3 – Even if you aren’t a big soccer fan, this is one of the best times to hang out with some major fans and enjoy the atmosphere – hey the game is only 90 min, right? (side note: if you are just going to complain, please don’t come to hang out with us – this is our super bowl…)
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.
