    I like the pic in Owen's post #17. Cpl Durant with his dirty pants and beat up boots. Just a working man having a beer and a smoke after a hard days work. Too bad he's from Wisconsin, though. :cool:

    One or two slightly irreverent adverts for you.

    Did they use a Panzer Faust to open the kegs? I thought there would be a big spew.

    Probably Morotai, late May 1945, US Navy photographers and printers, liberty party from USS Rocky Mount AGC3. What's the beer, anybody?

    There were a few Standard Brewing Companies. One was in Rochester, NY, and another in Cleveland, OH.

    Club Lager airmen.jpg Club Lager again.jpg Sometimes troops got beer from home, but often they had to get by on the local product. Here are some GI's (mostly airmen) in West Africa drinking Club Lager, a popular local brew in the Gold Coast. The Gold Coast is now Ghana, and they still make Club Lager there.

    Here's a guy with a dream detail: guarding the beer supply. Lucky Lager was a San Francisco beer and Acme Ale was a Los Angeles brand (Wile E. Coyote, brewmaster in chief). Since they were both California beers I figure this photo was taken either in a base on the west coast or somewhere in the Pacific.
