French serve alcohol free beer to British soccer fans
America might have a bad (and unfair) reputation for water-like beer, but France might have taken the lead. In an effort to control unruly British soccer fans, the French stadium Stade de France is serving alcohol-free beer. We’re not sure how that will keep them sane; we think it will just piss them off more. Who wants to watch a 4-hour 1-1 tie sober?
Over 250,000 pints were served at the full price, without advertising that the beer was alcohol-free. A Stade de France spokesman said: “The policy is working superbly because there has been no trouble whatsoever.” It’s clear that the stadium has not considered what will happen when thousands of angry British soccer fans discover that they have been duped by the French.

I live in Denver, Colorado. This blog is everything about beer, wine, cider, mead and other spirits.
I am a avid homebrewer and winemaker. I’ve been making my own beer and wine for many years. I started making beer when I was in college (mostly because the drinking age in the United States is 21). My first few beers were horrible. The beers are much better now, and I often supply my neighborhood with free beer! It is a great hobby!
