U.S. Marine Corps 246th Birthday Celebration
We are celebrating the 246th United States Marine Corps Birthday on November 10th, 2021! Join us for our 5th Annual Birthday with fellow Marines, Veterans of all services, and their guests!
This year, we honor the legendary Battle of Belleau Wood, fought during WWI in 1918. The Battle of Belleau Wood is known as one of the most important battles in U.S. Marine Corps history. The battlefield lays about five miles west of the town of Château-Thierry, barely fifty miles northeast of Paris, France.
Marines’ earned their semi-official nickname “Devil Dogs” or Teufel Hunden, given to them by the Germans they faced in France. The Germans were in awe of the fierce fighting and aggressive nature of the United States Marine. Belleau Wood has maintained not only a legacy as an iconic battle but also as the first of several learning laboratories for the Marine officers who eventually led their Corps to victory in World War II.
1912 Brewing Company will be featuring three handcrafted, french-inspired beers including ‘Gettin Jiggs With It’ a French Saison, our annual Green Feet Collaboration ‘Brig Bound Biere De Garde’, and ‘Teufel Hunden’ Abbey Ale! Each beer will be paired as part of a French-inspired three-course dinner. Our birthday meal will be brought to us by Marine-Owned, Daniela’s Cooking Food Truck.
A Marine Corps birthday celebration would not be complete without a memento to remember the night. We will be releasing two shirts based upon our newest birthday brews, a bottle release, and a 1912 x USMC Insignia glass.
