19th June, 2012 by db_staff

With Euro 2012 in full swing, we pair up popular ales with competing countries.

During FIFA World Cup 2010, over 200 million pints of beer were drunk in the UK as fans packed into fan parks and pubs to watch the action.

Here we go through some beer accompaniments for the tournament based on the 16 teams involved.
