Monday’s ad is for “Rainier Club Beer,” from 1948. 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 using the grammatically questionable “Enjoy The Beer You KNOW Is Clearest Lightest Driest” as its tagline. But that’s not just some bold claim, it’s been “PROVED by Independent Laboratory Tests.”

Today is the birthday of English beer writer Adrian Tierney-Jones. Adrian’s written several beer books, and writes online at Called to the Bar. I first got to know him when he was the editor for 1001 Beers You Must Taste Before You Die, to which I contributed around two-dozen entries. I’ve also seen Adrian at events in London and Belgium since then, and he’s a great person to share a pint with. Join me in wishing Adrian a very happy birthday.
