Monday’s ad is for “Rainier Pale Beer,” from 1906. This ad was made for the Seattle Brewing & Malting Co., who made Rainier Beer, and was later known as the Rainier Brewing Company of Seattle, Washington. This one is part of a series using the tagline “It Makes The Mountain Smile.” In the drawing, a somewhat creepy mountain smiles with a crown of beer bottles on his head, or is that his mountaintop? Fine or superfine?

Today is the 61st birthday of John Hansell, who was the publisher of Malt Advocate, the whisky magazine in America, which also puts on WhiskyFest in several cities, including San Francisco. John’s a terrific person I don’t see nearly often enough, and sadly, not for a few years. Join me in wishing John a very happy birthday.
