The Best of Both Worlds - Redhook Brewery Company’s Seattle Sounders/ECS Beer “No Equal” Blonde

Ahead of Saturday's always massive Cascadia clash between Portland Timbers and Seattle Sounders (2pm CT on NBCSN) we received a package at FBM HQ from Redhook Brewery. 

Inside was their latest edition of "No Equal", the beer created for Emerald City Supporters, the Sounders' largest supporters group. The original version of "No Equal" was an amber, but, just in time for spring, they've released a blonde version of their popular soccer-specific-beer (SSB). 

"No Equal" was the first SSB in the modern American soccer era and, of course, not to be out done by their Pacific Northwest partners the Timbers Army collaborated with Widmer Brothers Brewing to release "Green & Gold" kölsch (and re-released again this season) and a more limited released of "Big Hearts & Brass Balls, a Caleb porter.

There's nothing better about American soccer than a good ol' fashioned rivalry and it only makes it better when two great beer cities also happen to be two great soccer cities as well.
