Beer In Ads #1355: … Take Your ‘Pick’

Sunday’s ad is for Haffenreffer & Co., Inc., from 1946. This is from a series of billboard ads from around the same time I stumbled upon, though I’m sure the originals in color are more spectacular. In this ad for Pickwick Ale and Pickwick Ale Light, they’re advertising like that scene in The Blues Brothers, when they play in a redneck bar. When one of the Blues Brothers asks what kind of music they play here, a waitress replies “we got both kinds: country AND western.” Same deal with the choices presented here, your “pick” is between regular adjunct ale or light adjunct ale, which according to the label is “lighter than regular Pickwick.”
