Beer In Ads #974: There’s Only One Favorite

Wednesday’s ad is yet another one for Miller High Life, this one from May of 1950. Showing cartoons of American leisure, and the many occasions when a beer might be in order, it’s a stylish, if a little chaotic, ad. I don’t recall High Life labels having “Old Original” on them, just below the word “Beer?” Anybody remember that?

    I don’t recall this and wonder how many years the sub-title ran after 1950. I used to like this beer, circa-1970 it was very creditable and this isn’t just a relative statement, so was Coors, so was (especially) Michelob. Stone IPA they weren’t, but they were much better than today and valid on their own terms, IMO.
