Beer In Ads #895: What Made Milwaukee Change Its Mind?


Friday’s ad is for Blatz Beer, from 1953. Oddly, showing the evolution of bowling, equating that to the march of progress. In “modern times,” the bowlers of Milwaukee all drink Blatz, apparently. I love the red belt and red argyle socks that the “modern” man is wearing. Now that’s a modern outfit.

    Where’s the lawn in the top shot; where’s the wood in the bottom shot? Totally incongruous!
