Great video from Kick TV of this weekend's USMNT "snow-pocolyse" match against Costa Rica from Denver, Colorado.
 
Not just great because FBM leads the march to the stadium like Teddy Roosevelt's charge up San Juan Hill in the Spanish-American War.

FBM In Action - Fox Soccer’s “Goals On Sunday” Feature of the American Outlaws (We’re in there, too)

See how many Free Beer Movement scarves you can spot in this piece about the United States supporters group, the American Outlaws.

This was a segment during Fox Soccer's "Goals on Sunday" after the Liverpool-Manchester City match.

For those who have never seen FBM Founder Dan that's him wearing his other "hat", a Waldo one, for his other "job", helping run the Austin chapter of AO.

VIDEO - USMNT 2012 Year in Review

The United States Men's National team posted a 9-2-3 record for 2012 (their best winning percentage ever), notched important international friendly wins away to in Italy and Mexico, and saw Michael Bradley emerge as the "general" of this team. Yet, for all their success Landon Donovan was mostly absent and the Nats backed their way into the final round of World Cup Qualifying (not including the U-23 disaster).

What will 2013 bring? Hopefully qualification for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and a foundation for success there.

Look back on all the goals (seven from Clint Dempsey) for 2012 with this video from U.S. Soccer.

Through The Drinking Glass - Sierra Nevada Brewing Company

Photo Credit: BeerPulse.com

There are over 2,700 craft breweries and craft brew pubs in the United States according to the latest numbers from the Brewers Association. Each year that number grows by leaps and bounds as new brewers and breweries share their wealth of knowledge and delicious innovations with the public. We're starting this new series, "Through the Drinking Glass", to profile brewers and breweries across the country.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Meet Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. of Chico, California. Although if you're into craft beer you've probably met them many times. SA is one of the oldest and most successful craft breweries in the United States. For 32 years they've been putting out great "gateway" beers that have probably brought millions into the craft beer fold.

Their flagship beer, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, is hoppy, but not so intense to turn off any potential newbies. SA has also been an industry leader in sustainable brewing.

Check out their story and as they put it... their "pioneering spirit", which we can attest to, is still alive and well.

VIDEO - Why American Soccer? Because of this. A million times this.

 

Sure you've seen "The American Outlaws" on TV. It's all those crazy peopple behind the goal at U.S. national team matches.

This short film is a touching and slighty insane tribute to the immense atmosphere that they bring to each and every match (including more and more away games).

And it's not just at the stadium that they're like this. It's the same at each and every of their 70+ chapter bars across America.

You gotta join them.

Through The Drinking Glass - Founders Brewing Co.

There are over 2,000 craft breweries and craft brew pubs in the United States according to the latest numbers from the Brewers Association. Each year that number grows by leaps and bounds as new brewers and breweries share their wealth of knowledge and delicious innovations with the public. We're starting this new series, "Through the Drinking Glass", to profile brewers and breweries across the country. 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 
Meet Founders Brewing Company from Grand Rapids, Michigan. Makers of two of the highest rated beers in America (and plenty of other damn fine brews), Canadian Breakfast Stout and Kentucky Breakfast Stout
 
Two quotes that really stood out for us in this amazingly produced video about Founders' story. 
 
"The craft beer culture keeps on getting stronger and stronger. The best thing you can do for somebody is introduce them to craft beer. It will, literally, open up a whole new world."
 
Just substitute the word "soccer" for "craft beer" in the quote and you've got our core beliefs. That being said the parallels between craft beer and soccer continue astound us and that's why we've paired them together in the FBM.
 
And:
 
"Beer brings people together. "
 
Yup. So why not throw a soccer game on on the TV and do a little educating?

NEWS/VIDEO - Clint Dempsey Announced as 2012 U.S. Soccer Male Athlete of the Year

From U.S. Soccer

"For his excellence at the highest levels of the sport, U.S. Soccer announced U.S. Men's National Team forward Clint Dempsey as the 2012 Male Athlete of the Year. Dempsey led U.S. scorers in 2012 with six goals, including five in the Semifinal Round of 2014 FIFA World Cup Qualifying. The forward was also a big part of the USA's memorable win against Italy on Feb. 29, tallying the lone goal in the 1-0 victory in Genoa. He now has 30 goals in his career, tied with Brian McBride for third all-time. In England, Dempsey concluded his career at Fulham as the team's all-time leading scorer in the Premier League before moving to Tottenham in August in one of the highest-profile deals ever for an American abroad."

Plus, a Q&A with the man himself.

Even a cameo from "Deuce Face"!

VIDEO - Conan O’Brien Just Wants Free Beer

"Conan wants to skip the technical blah-blah-blah and get right to the free beer."

Conan O'Brien stopped by the Guiness Brewery in Dublin, Ireland, but he really doesn't care about all the history and the brewing process.

He just wants the free beer.

If you're ever wondering what FBM is like on a tour then look no further than this video.
