Match 1 9am: The Merseyside Derby

What is it? The Merseyside derby is the name given to football matches between Everton and Liverpool, two major clubs from Liverpool, Merseyside, England. It is the longest running top-flight derby in England, having been played continuously since the 1962–63 season. Part of the rivalry is due to the proximity of the two clubs, whose home grounds are within eyesight of each other across Stanley Park, Everton at Goodison Park and Liverpool at Anfield.

Kevin McGovern, Owner and Head Brewer of East Branch Brewing is a staunch Everton supporter. Dane Gray, Owner of Kildare's has been a Liverpool fan since the early 80's. Regardless of the result, both sides will bond over some outstanding beer.

Match 2 11am: The Manchester Derby

First contested in 1881. Manchester City play at the Etihad Stadium, while Manchester United play at Old Trafford. The teams have played 174 matches in all competitions, United winning 72, City 50, and the remaining 52 having been drawn. These two are at the top of the table and it will be one fantastic match.
