Post War Blatz







This may have been the first African American in a Beer Ad (I could be wrong)

Great stuff, Revvy. I really enjoyed the ads. As for Barbarossa, it may be coincedental, but Christian Moerlein makes a "double-dark lager" with the same name. From their website: the beer's name honors "Fredrick I, Emperor of Germany, known as Barbarossa." I'd be interested to know if the Barbarossa in those ads was a Cincinnati beer.

The story of the Blue ribbon is a fascinating bit of marketing...

Here's the version in the PBR marketing stuff...

Quote:
The famous "Blue Ribbon" label did not get started until 1882. Prior to 1882, Phillip Best Brewing Company had received awards for their beer. In 1876, Pabst won both the highest awards for bottled beer and a gold medal. In 1878 at a Paris World’s Fair, Pabst again won more medals.

In 1882, bottling became significantly important to the brewing business. When bottles were first used, these were generally plain and were not appealing to the public. Pabst decided to add pieces of blue ribbons tied around the necks of Best "Select" beer bottles. It didn’t take long before the public continued to ask for "The beer with the blue ribbon." By 1892, this special packaging idea became so popular that the company was purchasing 300,000 yards of silk ribbons, which workers tied by hand around each bottle. In 1895, words "Blue Ribbon" were eventually added to the label of Select Beer, and in January 1898, the Blue Ribbon label was first used.
But, To the contrary, there is evidence to suggest that no such award was given, as contemporaneous accounts indicate that many vendors were frustrated by the fair's refusal to award such prizes. One account says that the only prizes awarded by the executive committee were bronze medals in recognition of "some independent and essential excellence in the article displayed," rather "than merely to indicate the relative merits of competing exhibits.

The whole dirty tale is in chapter 3 of Maureen Ogle's fantastic and eye openning history of American Brewing, http://www.ambitiousbrew.com/



Notice the wine goblets, to make PBR "classy."



Pabst cheese, another product to survive prohibition.

This is from a series from the 40's of people with blue ribbons covering their eye...but they remind me of S/m erotica more than anything...



like this...



This looks like it was run in a comic book...

I tried to avoid it as long as possible, but you can't ignore a certain brewery's contribution to beer history without mentionning them...

1904


1905 (is that clear bottles I see???)



This is wild....I just heard about this guy...It turns out that the US's smallest national park designated site, is the apartment that he lived in during the revolutionary war. There is a park ranger on duty in the tiny place where maybe they get one visitor a day.



1935 this might be the first clydesdale ad...
