Euro 2012 beer matches

19th June, 2012 by db_staff

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

English football fans drank on average 17 pints each at FIFA World Cup 2006 in Germany and local breweries were reported to have called in emergency supplies of beer.

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.

With fears of racism, language issues, and against a tough economic backdrop, the bulk of England’s barmy army has stayed at home rather than make the trip to Poland and Ukraine for the tournament.

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