Wednesday’s ad is for Blatz Beer, from 1948. 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 famous actor Don Ameche, who was born in Kenosha, Wisconsin, which is just 35 miles south of Milwaukee. Also, Ameche’s father was a bartender.

Aaahh… nothing more relaxing than sitting out by the pool with a beer,while wearing a suit.
