At the recently held militaria fair in Ciney, I bought this amazing beer botle. Still closed and filled with beer. This is one of the beers the GI's drank in the Rest Centers. The Rest Centers were spread out in the region I live in, so was Rolduc Abbey in Kerkrade the Netherlands a well-know Rest Center (and there is some footage of it).

That is really cool :) I remember my grandfather talking about drinking Fort Pitt during the war. I'd love to find a bottle one of these days. Great find!
