Beer In Ads #1227: Real Quality Beer For 100 Consecutive Years

Thursday’s ad is for Iron City Beer, from 1960. Despite a clock in the background, they seem to have a funny idea about time. Actually, even funnier, that clock looks like it marks both the days in a month and the hours in a day; a clock and a calendar. The ad claims “Real quality beer for 100 consecutive years,” but that seems to ignore those pesky 13 years when no one was supposed to be brewing beer.

    I guess that “near beer” counted, in their eyes; unless they had a secret mafia-provided cave & brewed there to supply east coast speakeasies.
