RCU and Beer News

RCU Reserves in Action Wednesday
The Rocket City United reserve squad saw action Wednesday night as they traveled down to Birmingham to take on Birmingham United Soccer Association's U-19 squad.  BUSA is a member of the US Soccer Development Academy and provided stiff opposition for RCU.   Huntsville native Alex Clay scored the first goal for BUSA.  RCU Kyle Simmons looked good for RCU and added a goal to his tally and despite good play from RCU, BUSA would prevail 2:1 on a late goal from Cristos Noisiadis.  Director of Operations Jan Henner was happy with the play overall. "It was good.  We were able to get a run out against very good competition and we were able to draw some conclusions on a few things."

Saturday Is Youth Night
Remember that Saturday is Youth Night at RCU's home match against rival Chattanooga FC.  All kids wearing their youth soccer jerseys get in for FREE!

Brewery Modernization Act Signed Into Law
As a Free the Hops member I'm proud to report that beer lovers across the state of Alabama can rejoice as another bill designed to update the antiquated restrictions on brewing and selling beer was signed into law by the governor today.  The Brewery Modernization Act will allow breweries to have tap rooms and tours.  It will also allow Brewpubs to sell the beer they brew outside of their location.  As the man from the Redstripe commercial says, "Hooray, Beer!"

  2. Haha! I know where your mind is. Didn't meant to lead you on. I do miss the days of going to Olde Towne after games.
