TASTING NOTES: AIRBOURNE BELGIAN BROWN ALE
The folks from Belgian Style Ales offer the following information on the product I tasted.
“In 1944, during the Battle of the Bulge, the 101st Airborne set up a temporary hospital in a church in Bastogne. It was there that machine gunner Vincent Speranza found his good buddy — who requested something to drink. With most of the town destroyed, he eventually found a working tap at local pub, and then carried the precious cargo – in his helmet – back to the hospital. Thus, the legend of the Airborne soldier carrying beer in his helmet was born.”
