Wednesday’s ad is for Blatz Beer, from 1951. The ad is part of Blatz’s “I lived in Milwaukee, I ought to know” series from the later Forties and Fifties that featured prominent celebrities, sports figures and famous folks from Milwaukee claiming to know “Blatz is Milwaukee’s Finest Beer” because they lived there, or near there, at some point in their lives. This one features actor Gene Raymond, who apparently lived in Milwaukee at some point in his life.

I’d love to see a microbrewery start Tweeting or Instagramming images of famous brewers/bloggers/celebrities drinking their beer.
