Sunday’s ad is for Pabst Blue Ribbon, from 1951. 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, though in case I’m a little glad it’s in black and white. In this ad for Pabst, they’re advertising with a giant burger and a beer, asking “what’ll you have?,” a popular tagline of Pabst, along with this statement: “finest beer served … anywhere!”
Beer Can for Glass says
Unless that is a giant hand, it appears the glass of beer is not very big.
The burger sure looks light on toppings compared to pub burgers we get today. I don’t think I would trade a pint of craft beer and a loaded burger for what is illustrated here.
