Beer In Ads #2139: Hop … Hop … Hooray

Brookston Beer Bulletin - Wed, 12/28/2016 - 23:36
Wednesday’s ad is for Pabst Blue Ribbon, from 1942. It’s a fairly odd cartoon with two window washers, all in red, jumping off a building and using their buckets as parachutes, just so they get a couple of beer. The pun-filled ad is actually titled “‘DOUBLE-HOPPED’ is...

Beer In Ads #2138: Hamm’s Acid Trip

Brookston Beer Bulletin - Tue, 12/27/2016 - 23:35
Tuesday’s ad is for Hamm’s, from 1974. It was created as an iron-on t-shirt design by RoAcH studios. And typical of the designs of that time, it looks to me like what the Hamm’s Bear would see after he dropped acid, chased with a Hamm’s, of course. Sitting by a stream, beer...
