By now, we assume you all know how much we love football shirts. But for a lot of us at FSC, beers are a pretty close second. So, when we got a delivery through the door from the good people at Beer52, it got us thinking about how we could combine these two things.
That led us to beers as football shirts! We will start off with some of the craft beers Beer52 sent us, before moving on to a more general mix.
And if you want to match your own beers to football shirts – and, you know, drink them – you can now get a free case of craft beers and lagers from Beer52 here.
Duvel x FC Nordsjaelland
If you have been following our socials in the last few months, you will know what big fans we are of FC Nordsjaelland and their 2021-22 kits. So when we discover Duvel’s yellow and red blonde beer in the case, there was only ever going to be one shirt we could pair it with.
Moor Beer Company x Fluminense
The flash of orange in Fluminense’s 2020 Umbro 3rd kit really made it stand-out, and the effect is happening with Moor Beer company’s Illumination bitter.
Stiegl x Bayern Munich
The minute we pulled this bottle of Stiegl bio-zwickl out of the box, we knew what shirt is was being paired with! That off-white label even reminds us of a recent version of Bayern Munich’s Oktoberfest jersey.
ABK x PAOK
We don’t come across grey kits too often, but luckily we have a few PAOK shirts that fit nicely with this ABK pilsner.
Thorbridge Halcyon x Vancouver Whitecaps
The icy blue points on Whitecaps jerseys are meant to represent the snow-covered hills of Vancouver, and in doing so they also blend excellently with this blue and gold can of Thornbridge beer, with similar mosaic patterns.
Now onto some more general examples of beers as football shirts. We have picked a few out from this thread we posted a year ago.
Red Stripe x Southampton
Props to Will Magee spotting this one!
Guinness x Barcelona
May as well have stuck the harp on that Barcelona shirt!
Brewdog x Flamengo
Surely this is a future collab in the making?
Thatcher’s x Norwich
It might be a cidre, but this worked too well not to include it.
Blue Moon x Wolves
Just when you thought you’d wiped that Wolves shirt from your memory…
Coors Light x Vancouver Whitecaps
It’s a double appearance for Vancouver Whitecaps
Fosters x Boca Juniors
We could pair Red Stripe up with River Plate and have a beer Super Clasico!
