Thirsty Austin FC fans no longer have to wait to fork over nearly twenty bucks for a brew at Q2 Stadium. Turns out, there are budget-friendlier watering holes hidden within the soccer fortress. As reported by the Austin American Statesman, supporters can gulp down $7 domestic and $8 premium 12-ounce beers at certain concessions. Spots to score these deals include Eastside Eats behind sections 126 and 127, Munchies under the supporters section, and not to forget Double Dave's Pizza, stationed strategically behind section 123.

Austin's Q2 Stadium isn't just a venue to watch the city's own get down and dirty on the soccer field. It's a place where fans can equally feed and hydrate, without needing to break the bank. A little birdie tells us, according to Austin Eater, that local culinary delights grace the concession stands under the watchful eye of chef Sam Boisjoly and 512 Food Co. From Valentina's Tex Mex BBQ to OneTaco, the stadium lines up Austin's favorites ready to tackle any game-day cravings.

With Austin FC's home opener set for Saturday, February 24 against Minnesota United FC, fans better strategize their meal plans alongside their game-day chants. Remember, this cashless bastion demands your plastic for payment, and those looking to get buzzy can only carry out to buy two alcoholic drinks at once before sales cease 80 minutes into game time.

But if the thought of spicy barbecue or tacos isn't enough to have you charging to Q2, then maybe their beverage policies might. Drinkers beware: you can't bring in or take out any alcoholic goodies. Need to cool down? Hydration comes in clutch with Yeti water stations and fountains, a reprieve that won't cost you a dime. For those concerned about stuff, small purses and bags essential for medical or childcare are A-Okay, but leave the rest at home or in the car.

For the full culinary and drinking rundown, thirsty and hungry fans can check out the tips and protocols highlighted by Austin Eater and the inside scoop on the beer deals from the Austin American Statesman. No matter where you end up in the stadium, it seems there's a bite or a sip that won't require a VAR review on your wallet.
