At 1-8-1 and four points, D.C. United is off to the worst start in the team’s history. There hasn’t been much to cheer about, but perhaps this news might give DCU fans a little something to get behind.
United and local brewing company DC Brau are teaming up to create a team-specific beer. From the release:
D.C. United, in collaboration with DC Brau Brewing Company, LLC, today announced that DC Brau will brew a limited edition D.C. United specific beer – the only one of its kind in the DC sports world. While the beer is currently without a name, the two have partnered to launch a contest giving D.C. United fans the opportunity to name the new brew. Fans can submit their suggestions at http://www.dcunited.com/brandthebrew.
The special DC Brau craft beer will be a unique, one-of-a-kind brew, crafted specifically for D.C. United and its fans to enjoy. One thousand gallons of the beer will be produced and will be made available exclusively at participating D.C. United official bar partners and at the DC Brau Brewing Company.
Fans on Twitter are offering name suggestions via #DCUBeers. Clearly everyone is a little frustrated with the way the season is going.
