Wednesday’s ad is for “Budweiser,” from 1958. This ad was made for Anheuser-Busch, and was part of their series using the tagline. “Where there’s Life … there’s Bud,” which ran from the 1950s into the 1960s, and this one features a woman who apparently just heard someone pouring her a beer because she appears to have turned her very quickly to see what was going on behind her. Maybe he snuck up on her? Who knows, but the text begins: “Look!”

Today is the 55th birthday of Scott Ungermann, who until recently was the Production Director at Anchor Brewing. When I first met Scott, he was the Brewmaster at the Anheuser-Busch brewery in Fairfield, a position he held for almost six years, plus brewing stints at other AB facilities for over thirteen years. When I was working on my latest book, he gave me and my son Porter a great tour of the facility and I discovered we had several mutual friends since he was a 1995 graduate of U.C. Davis. Scott’s a very passionate brewer, and I was thrilled to run into him at the annual Anchor Christmas party a few years ago, discovering that he’d joined the team at Anchor. More recently he’s struck out on his own to do a bit of freelance brewing. Join me in wishing Scott a very happy birthday.
