MatchPass pre-match pint

Everything match specific.

So Apparently you can no longer buy a Match Pass Beer that's local, you can only get a discount on swill not-really-"domestic" beer.

"One change for the 2015 season is that pre-match pint will be only for domestic beers as opposed to both domestic and craft, but this offer is exclusive to season tickets members with a MatchPass."

As a partaker in getting in early and grabbing a pint or 2 prematch I am pretty disappointed with the new change,
Guess I won't be spending as much in the RBP on beers.

Budweiser: Owned by InBev, which is currently housed in Leuven, Belgium
Miller is owned by SABMiller, housed in London, England.
Coors is owned by Molson/Coors, with dual headquarters in both Montreal and Denver.

Yeah, the $6 dollar pints (any tap) 30 minutes before the match, was a nice feature of the match pass. I would guess many people will be avoiding beers pre-match again, because $9 isn't worth it.

The $6 pints of No Equal were great. I guess they get to raise the price now that they sell it at room temperature. No thanks, I'll just get my fill at Merchants during the Barra pre-funk.

I just emailed my ticket rep expressing my disappointment with the new "program". I would encourage other beer lovers to do the same, who knows maybe they will change it back?

So frustrating. Definitely sneaking in more booze as a result...
