On The Lighter Side, a thread started discussing some old ad campaigns.. pretty interesting.

Some of the most clever were beer ads.. I can remember Dizzy Dean doing Falstaffs on the Saturday Game of the Week..

My Dad worked for Falstaff back then... and later, I remember the Papa Joe Griesedieck ads for the beer....

Heres a pretty good historical site for Falstaff...

I never cared for Falstaff.   My uncle used to work for that company in STL.   They had some good beer ads, though.

My beer is Rheingold, the dry beer
Think of Rheingold whenever you buy beer
It's not bitter, not sweet
It's a dry flavored treat
Won't you try, extra dry, Rheingold beer.




Take a ring
Add another ring
And another ring
And then you've got three rings Balentine.

The best beer ads ever were the Mike Nichols-Elaine May ads for Jax.

There was, on YouTube, an ad for Falstaff that kinda cracked me up... it was Hank Snow (who had two hits about beer.. the first was Red Necks, White Socks and Blue Ribbon Beer.. and then What Made Milwaukee Famous, Made a Loser out of Me.)

Show your age. Which two beers were being referenced in those songs?

This is a one-hour show that consists entirely of beer commercials, one after another.

At about 9:30 is the Deacon Jones Miller Lite commercial. I had forgotten about that.
