Beer In Ads #1020: He Started Your Country Club


Thursday’s ad is for Budweiser, also from 1948. It’s yet another of Bud’s “Great Contributions to Good Taste” series, this one suggesting that it was James VI of Scotland who made country clubs possible, because he changed the laws to allow golf (which had apparently been prohibited by earlier kings). Having been to countless wedding receptions at country clubs, I’m not entirely convinced that it was such a great contribution to good taste.
