5 Best Major League Soccer Craft Beer Partnerships

Stocks in this article: BUD TAP BREW

Rimando's Wit
Style: Witbier
Brewer: Unsacred Brewing
MLS Team: Real Salt Lake

Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando has been a defensive mainstay in MLS since being drafted by the now-defunct Miami Fusion in 2000.

At 34 years old, he's one of the league's elder statesmen, but is still vital to Real Salt Lake's fortunes. He allowed only four regulation-time goals during last year's MLS playoffs and earned Real Salt Lake a spot in the MLS Cup title game -- falling only when the penalty kicks portion of the championship went to sudden death.

He's also one of the league's most fun goalkeepers to watch, largely because of his unorthodox style -- which makes him a great fit for this unorthodox beer. Utah knocked down its laws barring full-strength beers outright, but the stuff poured on tap and sold in supermarkets still has to be 4% ABV or less.

That's exactly what you're getting with Rimando's wit: A whole lot of unfiltered wheat, citrus flavor and coriander spice in a less potent 4% ABV package. That's well below Blue Moon's 5.4% ABV for its Belgian White and even lower than Allagash's 5% ABV white. It's a mild style, but it's far more sessionable than usual for Real Salt Lake fans.

Still, it's nice to be acknowledged, but even nicer to know that Utah's draconian beer laws won't prohibit more collaborations in the future. In fact, Utah's Squatters Pubs and Wasatch Brewing are creating a "Snap Down Header" beer in a yet-unknown style in collaboration with Real Salt Lake's color commentator (and former MLS player) Brian Dunseth this year.
