The Rochester Rhinos of the USL 1st Division (one level below MLS) opened their brand spankin' new soccer-dedicated stadium yesterday amid sheets of rain and electrical problems.
It was a fantastic game, and an impressive stadium, with one disturbing oversight on management's part: No craft beer. Zip. Nada. Not even good imports, unless you count Heineken and Sol.
I would've liked to see something, Saranac, Flying Bison, Rohrbach. Anything.
So I ordered Heineken, and they gave me the whole keg can. At a soccer match. I biefly entertained the notion of going all soccer fan on them, filling the keg can up with water, and whipping it at a player, but that's not really me. '
So, please, Rhinos management, work something out. A Bud might be fine at a baseball game, but the world's game requires world-class beer.
