News Watch: Struggling German Giants Join Free Beer Movement

The Free Beer Movement has members in at least six countries and dozens of U.S. states, but this weekend we gained a very prestigious member in Germany. I don't think they know it yet, but German super-club Bayern Munich just joined the Free Beer Movement with this move:

"Fans of Bayern Munich, who have made their worst start to the Bundesliga for 43 seasons, will get a chance to drown sorrows before Saturday's (yesterday's) home match with champions VfL Wolfsburg.

The Bavarian club are to give away more than 7,000 litres of beer before the game as part of a sponsorship deal with a Munich-based brewery."

I'm assuming Landon Donovan mentioned us while he was over there on load last season.

Whether or not Bayern in conscious of their new "honorary" membership in the FBM it is a great reminder of the powerful combination of free beer and soccer. Even when you team is down and out, at any point in the season, free beer can do the trick.

So where ever you are in the world right now, find a game, bring some friends, and join the Germans and us in the Free Beer Movement!
