Tuesday’s ad is yet another one from the United Brewers Industrial Foundation, again from 1939. This was well before the “Beer Belongs” series, and just before World War II. The worker, the taxman and the farmer are all saying “Thanks a Million!” for the over one million dollars paid in taxes each and every day by the beer industry. But I especially love this line. “Even the non-beer drinker enjoys beer’s economic benefits!”

The three photographs are epic. Especially the tax collector with his hand out.
The “tax collector” could be KGO’s Mike Shuman’s (grand)dad – the facial resemblance is uncanny! Shuman was a tight end for Penn State late 70’s/early 80’s before landing w/the 49ers. He’s been w/KGO since he retired from the NFL (injuries cut his career short).
