Beer In Ads #609: One Can Left In The Refrigerator

Thursday’s ad is for the manufacturer Continental Can Company, from 1959, extolling the virtue of their can for beer. Showing an illustration of four seating men standing around an open refrigerator with a can of generic Light Beer in it, the company promises that “Continental has the right beer package for you!”

    My Dad worked for CCC back in the day. In the late 60’s and early 70’s, they’d built can plants right next to Schlitz’s biggest breweries.

    Remember walking around the plant and looking at stakes of lithoed sheets prior to their cutting and forming into barrels.

    Great stuff.
