Revolution x Chicago Fire FC

Grab a four-pack of Hazy Pitch, the official craft beer of Chicago Fire FC, and get ready for 90 minutes of action.

Revolution Brewing is the official craft brewery of Chicago Fire FC. And to mark the partnership with our hometown Major League Soccer club, we brew Hazy Pitch, a year-round Hazy Pale Ale featuring the team's crest and colors. If you're a longtime Fire fan looking for a new matchday beer, we're happy to oblige. If you're a longtime Rev fan who hasn't been following soccer, we're here to help you get acquainted with the world's most beloved sport.

Hazy Pitch

Refreshing and tropical with a striking finish

We're a brewery full of soccer fans – from longtime MLS faithful to people watching their adopted European clubs over a boozy breakfast. The recipe development behind Hazy Pitch was almost entirely centered on the question "what kind of beer do we want to drink while watching a match?" We wanted something easy to drink with our focus on the game, but nuanced enough to enjoy the rest of the time. There's a reason why lagers and soccer have such a long association. But we already make a Pilsner we love, so we set out to add an entirely new beer to our year-round lineup.

Enter the American Pale Ale. It's a lower-ABV cousin of India Pale Ale, with enough room for compelling hops and a decidedly thirst-quenching finish on the palate. Brewmaster Jim Cibak brought new-school El Dorado, Citra, Nelson Sauvin, and Cryo Mosaic hops to the classic style, along with the same Hazy IPA yeast we use for our double dry hopped IPAs. The result was a beer with tropical citrus notes, soft and smooth on the palate and refreshing in the finish. And just like that, Hazy Pitch was born.

The name Hazy Pitch mixes our interests as soccer fans and brewers. The pitch is where soccer is played, but it's also what we call adding our yeast to the fermentation tank. And "Hazy" describes both the beer and calls back to one of the most famous goals in Chicago Fire history.

In designing the look, we wanted to showcase the fans and supporter culture. Over the years, players come and go, stadiums change, and there's always a new kit on the horizon. But the flag-waving, drum-beating, chant-screaming presence of the club's biggest fans has always been what we identify most with the Chicago Fire.

Hazy Pitch joins Fist City and Rev Pils in our City Series lineup of year-round beers exclusive to Chicagoland.

Chicago Fire FC

The Chicago Fire FC was founded in 1997, just a year after Major League Soccer began play. Their debut season was one of the most successful expansion years in sports history, with the Fire winning the coveted double – MLS CUP and U.S. Open Cup – in their first year as a Club.

Since then, they've added three more U.S. Open Cups, the 2003 Supporters' Shield (given to the team with the most regular season points) and have appeared in two additional MLS Cup finals.

Along the way, some giants of MLS and global soccer have played for the team. Bastian Schweinsteiger, Cuauhtemoc Blanco, DaMarcus Beasley, Piotr Nowak, and more have played for Chicago.

In 2020, the Fire returned to their original home, the historic Soldier Field along the lakefront. The Fire introduced a new crest for all Chicago, and have doubled down on becoming Chicago's soccer club.

Players to Watch

Xherdan Shaqiri

The Fire's star Designated Player has had a storied career with Bayern Munich, Liverpool, and the Swiss national team. He plays an attacking midfielder role with the Fire, firing pinpoint passes to open up scoring threats and tenaciously tracking down the ball on defense.

Rafael Czichos

Fresh from 103 games with F.C. Köln in the Bundesliga, Czichos joined the Fire in 2022 and became a fan favorite and backline stalwart. He's known for accurate, line-breaking passes and strength in front of goal.

Federico Navarro

Navarro's work ethic and tirelessness led Argentina's soccer media to joke that he has a third lung. He joined the team mid-2021 and immediately strengthened the core of the defense, winning back possession and controlling the midfield.

Rivals

Sports are better with a nemesis, and the Fire have some great ones

Columbus Crew

The Fire and Crew have played some classic matches over the years -- notably the 1998 U.S. Open Cup final at Soldier Field. Former Fulham/U.S. striker (and Arlington Heights native) Brian McBride played for both teams at different points in his career.

New England Revolution

Despite their excellent taste in names, the Revolution is solidly on the enemies list. The 2021 Supporters Shield winners come into also come into the season rocking a new crest. The all-time series is nearly even (slight edge to the Fire), and these matches are always one to circle on the calendar.

How can I watch?

By the time the 2022 season kicks off, we'll have upgraded the A/V setup at both our Taproom (3340 N. Kedzie) and Brewpub (2323 N. Milwaukee). We'll be showing every game, with sound on during the opener, weekday games, and playoffs.

We'll also be running watch parties, bar events, and other Fire-related activities all year long. Keep an eye here for updates as they come.

And if you're spending the match in with some Hazy Pitch, you can check out the TV schedule for a list of broadcasts.
