Vintage Holiday Beer Ads

We’re still getting a lot of hits off of last year’s Vintage Santa Beer Ads, so to continue the tradition, we found some more Vintage Ads to poke fun at.

Schlitz 1959

The power of suggestion at it’s finest. Drink Schlitz and that’s all you need to live the good life. Love the Winterscape in the background, but I’m wondering why the beer’s just for him?

Fiddler

Nothing like double fisting beer for the holidays, but why bother with a glass?

Miller 1947

Miller High Life 1947

V1rgil:

Great rendering of Winter, complete with an open sleigh and…two horses?

Fiddler:

Boy oh boy,  do I ever wish I lived on a beer farm.

V1rgil:

This guy is just way too happy to be getting tanked for the holidays. He’s like your creepy uncle Fred who passes out just before the Turkey’s ready.

Fiddler:

Agreed this guy is extremely happy even though he is carrying Black Label.

V1rgil:

Really Budweiser? Nothing like it? At least in this one the wife’s allowed to have a beer too.  AFTER she made sandwiches of course.

Guiness Santa

Guinness Date Unknown

V1rgil:

Little known fact, George RR Martin looks to vintage beer ads for his slogans. This is like a wartime ad. Except when did Australia go to war? I mean aside from the great kangaroo war of 1910 of course.

V1rgil:

Yes! This poster is fantastic. It’s beer advertising for the Disney crowd. Nothing says Christmas like psychedelic voyages and under-age drinking. Also I want that pelican as a pet.

Molson 1926

V1rgil:

Simple, boring and in French. Banking on name brand recognition and an almost complete lack of competiion. Your move Labatt Bleu.

Happy holidays! Thanks for reading!
