Navy SEALs -- The Beer Guzzlin' Celebration

5/2/2011 3:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A bunch of Navy SEALs based in San Diego celebrated their faces off last night ... toasting the UNBELIEVABLE raid carried out by their fellow SEAL brothers by reveling at a S.D. bar ... a bar which happens to be owned by a retired SEAL.


TMZ spoke with American bad ass Greg McPartlin -- owner of McP's pub -- who told us when the news broke, SEALs from the nearby Naval Base Coronado quickly packed the house ... many carrying American flags.

We're told the soldiers went through 8 kegs, 15 cases of beer and TONS of cocktails in just four hours ... while leading the bar in several "USA!" chants.

McPartlin tells us, "It's great -- Osama was expecting his 72 virgins, instead he got 24 Virginians!" (The Navy SEAL team that executed the mission is based in Virginia.)

FYI -- the Naval Base Coronado is the home of the USS Carl Vinson ... the ship from which Osama's body was dumped into the North Arabian Sea.

A media relations spokeswoman at the base tells TMZ there are currently no celebrations taking place at N.B.C., in part because, "Our boys had a lot of fun over at the Irish pub last night!"

Do you think Americans should celebrate the death of Osama bin Laden?

Personally, It makes me really uncomfortable, and I don't think it'll play well overseas.

The fact that they put where the Carl Vinson is homebased is obsolete being as the Navy Public Affair officer always releases that kind of info. what they CANT put or release is the exact ship movement. so CALM down. no one is in harms way.

MC P'S!!! GREAT BAR!!!!!! :-) love hitting that place up on occasion

I would have liked to seen his head on a Pike on the front of the carrier as it sailed back into port here in the USA.
