Beer of the Month Club (June 2012)

Surprisingly "working" at the Free Beer Movement involves quite a bit of beer drinking. We're constantly on the look out for new beers (and a few old favorites). It's a bit of a quest now. With each visit to our neighborhood beer store, breweries, and brew pubs (and quite a few on our travels) we're constantly seeking out a beers that have never touched our lips.

We do it all for your, loyal FBMers. So that everytime you're looking to offer that next free beer to that newbie (or join up with a few soccer friends) you can reach into the FBM vault o' beers and offer something unique from the craft beer world.

Since the beginning of all this madness in 2009 we've tried over 1,000 DIFFERENT beers and posted them to our Facebook and Twitter accounts. (Editor's Note: We've have an untapped account, but feel overwhelmed at the idea of going back and logging every beer we've had in the last three years.) So many that it feels like the best get lost in the near-daily upload of a beer picture here and there.

We've decided to a couple (maybe more if you're lucky!) beers a month from our craft brew quest and feature them on the FBM website. Each month we'll chose five of our favorites. Hopefully most you'll be able to get in your area, but we can't promise.

As always if you've had some amazing beers yourself then please share them in the comments section. The more we can expose each other to quality craft beer the stronger the FBM (and American soccer) will be.
