Beer In Ads #577: The Height Of Hospitality


Tuesday’s ad is for Pabst Blue Ribbon from 1911. Showing an elaborately uniformed server pouring a PBR, you can see the bottles still have silver foil and have an actual blue ribbon attached to each bottle. Now that’s fancy. The angled shape of the label looks a lot like the same shape used by Miller High Life, though I have no idea who first used it. The text is priceless.
