Friday’s ad is for “Rainier Beer,” from 1904. 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 shows a trio of women on the beach pointing out to sea, where there’s a giant bottle of beer bobbing on the waves. Or it is surfing? The tagline is somewhat inscrutable. “For it is on the top which proves its high grade.” I’m not really sure what that means.
