US Marine Corps 244th Birthday Celebration: Boxer Rebellion
Phone: (520) 256-4851
Venue: 1912 Brewing Company
1912 Brewing Company is celebrating the 244th Marine Corps Birthday! Join us for a night of celebrating with fellow Marines, Veterans, and civilians! This is our 4th annual celebration of the Marine Corps Birthday at 1912 Brewing Company with folks from all branches. This years theme is the Boxer Rebellion where Marines were sent to protect Americas attaché, including the US Minister to China, EH Conger, at the end of the 19th century. The uprising was a rebellion against foreigners, Christians, and to some degree the Chinese imperialist government. Vastly outnumbered, the detachment of Marines fought valiantly to accomplish their mission of protecting those threatened by the Boxers, most notably in the siege of Peking. Seven of the Marines received the Medal of Honor. Marine Corps legends Smedley Butler and Dan Daly were part of the detachment of Marines, but at the time officers were not eligible to receive the Medal of Honor. On this day we honor the first time these two legends crossed paths and thank all Marines that continue to fight for those who cannot fight for themselves. Your sacrifice does not go unnoticed and is appreciated by a grateful nation. We will have a special bottle release of both the 1912 Weapons Check Irish Red Ale and the 1912 Weapons At The Ready Imperial Irish Red Ale! These beers pay tribute to 1912 Owner/Head Brewer, for both his Irish heritage and service in the Marine Corps. In addition, we will be releasing the collaboration with Cider Corps, Chestys Besties Fruited Sour, and our collabrewation with Green Feet Brewing, the Brig Bound Biere De Garde! As if that wasnt enough, we will also be tapping Earn Your Blues Cider from fellow Marine-Owned business, Cider Corps. Traditional Chinese appetizers and dinner will be catered by Danielas Cooking.
