Beer In Ads #1068: Pilsner Urquell Delivers In Space


Saturday’s ad is another postcard for Pilsner Urquell, from what looks to be the 1950s based on the style of illustration on this postcard. SInce it shows a satellite taking Pilsner Urquell to a Moon family or aliens out for a joyride, it’s probably after Sputnik, which was 1957. I love this style of illustration and the idea that they’d been observing earth for some time, but only once we sent up a satellite they would “finally going to drink.” I mean, couldn’t they get take out? Did they have to wait until delivery service began?
