5 Best Major League Soccer Craft Beer Partnerships

Stocks in this article: BUD TAP BREW

ECS No Equal
Style: Amber Lager, Blonde
Brewer: Redhook
MLS Team: Seattle Sounders

Portland can make all the Flounders jokes it wants, but only one team in the MLS has the fan support to draw more than 44,000 per game.

Just as a point of comparison -- albeit one that discounts the number of games in each sport's season -- Major League Baseball's Seattle Mariners haven't averaged more than 40,000 per game since 2003. The Sounders are a team with multiple, huge supporters groups and, as a result, get a whole lot of beer thrown their way.

Woodinville, Wash.-based Redhook got back to its roots last year by returning to the city where it first set up shop in 1981 and giving the Emerald City Supporters group a beer of its own in ECS No Equal Amber Lager. A mild, easy drinking match-day beer, ECS No Equal's lager version was a great beer for the full 90 minutes and really well suited to the Sounders' soggier contests.

This year's entry, a wheaty, citrusy blonde ale balanced with Cascade and Willamette hops, is built around the sunnier portions of the schedule when the ferries make their way to the peninsula and islands and the tourists cram the waterfront and Pike Place Market in lines leading to just about every local food offering imaginable. At 5.2% ABV, it's still benign enough to make it through a long match day, but its citrusy flavor is enough to remind you that when the mountains are out and the Sounders are at home, there are few better places to be than in Seattle's fleeting sun.
