Wednesday’s ad is for Schlitz, from 1945. “Just the Kiss of the Hops” was a popular slogan used by Schlitz for several decades. It’s meant to express that their beer had no bitterness, but they definitely had some fun with it over the years. In this ad, the same woman from a previous ad is shown very close-up, showing just a portion of her face puckering up to kiss some hop cones.

Today is the 34th birthday of Kushal Hall, former Director of Brewing Operations for Speakeasy Ales & Lagers. Kushal had been brewing at Speakeasy since 2007, but left in May of last year, to open his own space in Southern California. The new brewery will be called Common Space Brewing and will be located in Hawthorne. It should open before the end of the year. While Kushal studied photography at UC Santa Cruz, I think we can all agree the world is a better place since he became a brewer. A terrific brewer and person, please join me in wishing Kushal a very happy birthday.
