Beer In Ads #1202: Ale Man Alec Cushing

Sunday’s ad is another one for Ballantine Ale, also from 1962. In an ad series somewhat similar to the Blatz series, the “Ale Man” in the ad is a famous person, although more marginally famous tending more toward the manly fame. In this one, the ad features Alec Cushing, who built the Squaw Valley Ski Resort, making him “a man with a thirst for a manlier brew.”
