Beer In Ads #1210: The Beer From Maryland

Monday’s ad is for National Premium, from 1948, a beer also known as “The Beer From Maryland!” I love pictorial maps and this one in 3D is especially cool. According to the ad, beer connoisseurs include National Premium “Among the greatest beers on earth.” I’m not so sure about that claim.

    A breweery should really incorporate that type of illustration into a seasonal release. I argue for Sierra Nevada, since they’re now located in two different states, and they already utilize classic designs for their labels.

    That purple and gold package design still looks great to this day. Wish they’d bring it back.

    Does that beer even still exist? It was hard to find even when I lived in DC suburbs (12/62-11/78).
