WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — Soccer fans in the D.C. area are in for a hoppy treat: their local team is getting its own custom-made beer.
D.C.’s Major League Soccer team is partnering with DC Brau Brewing Company to brew a limited edition D.C. United beer. The beer, which is going to be a golden ale, will be a “unique, one-of-a-kind brew, crafted specifically for D.C. United and its fans to enjoy,” the soccer club says.
The team also wants United fans to name the new beer through its “Brand the Brew” online naming competition. United fans can submit their suggestions for the brew’s name on the club’s website starting May 15 through May 29.
A final list of fan-suggested names will be selected and given to D.C. United players, who then will choose the beer’s name. The person who submits the winning name will receive a field-side D.C. United gameday experience for two as well as some serious bragging rights.
DC Brau says it will brew 1,000 gallons of the beer, which will be sold at select D.C. United bar partners and at the DC Brau Brewing Company.
