Fans of the Potomac Nationals are going to have to do without some of their favorite alcoholic beverages for now.

Some fans may be upset, but there is good reasoning behind the team's decision to remove some of the beer from Pfitzner Stadium. With the United States taking on Belgium in the round of 16 at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the team removed all of the banned beer from the concession stands before Monday's game.

In a press release, via NBC Washington, the team made the following announcement: "In the event the USMNT was to be defeated by Team Belgium tomorrow, it is not clear whether or not the Potomac Nationals will continue to carry Belgian beer at Pfitzner Stadium."

That should give fans extra reason to cheer for Team USA.

Fans will need to find a way to quench their thirst in other ways for the time being, all for their country.
