While I was looking for some pictures for new post headers I came across some pretty interesting vintage beer ads. After looking through a few pages of these I learned three things from vintage beer ads:
- Beer is manly
- You need to “Pick up a pair” of Bud 6-packs
- Vintage ads actually cared about proper glassware
I think the thing that surprised me the most is the use of proper glassware in the majority of ads. We think of goblets and snifters as tools of the modern beer snob today when in actuality there is something to using the right glass, as you can see from the images below.
Check out the gallery below from Facebook and head over there for more new labels as well.
