Airborne beer with M1 helmet mug
While on our battlefield trip in and around Bastogne, we picked up this Airborne beer. The gift pack comes with a ceramic mug shaped like an M1 helmet. It is marked ‘Airborne’ on one side and ‘Battle of the Bulge’ on the other side. It’s a bit awkward to drink beer from, but it’s great for serving NUTS!
The beer is brewed locally at Brasserie Lamborelle. The beer has a dark red-brown color with a nice head, but not too much foam. It had some grain, malt and spices in its taste, with some sweetness I can’t quite describe. It’s nice, but a bit flat. Not one of my favorite beers. But I did buy one to keep as a souvenir, and the mug is really neat.
I am a volunteer at a Veterans Museum in Lawrenceville, GA. GWINNETT COUNTY VETERANS MEMORIAL MUSEUM. While attending Currahee Military weekend in Toccoa, GA I learned their was a gift package available for Airborne Beer. I am interested in purchasing one and adding it to our WW II exhibition room.
Hi Larry, I bought mine at a temporary exhibit in Bastogne, but it was sold elsewhere in Bastogne too. I don’t live near there and don’t think I could send you beer by mail 🙂 But if you are planning to visit Bastogne in the near future, I can ask someone who lives there to buy you a gift pack.
I would like to purchase a Airborne Beer Guft pack.
I know this is kind of late, but someone else might find this post. Airborne Beer is brewed in Bastogne, and available online at their website:

That’s so cool! Thanks for letting me know. Now everyone can order this online who can’t go to Bastogne for themselves.
