Monday’s ad is for Beverwyck Brewing, from 1949. The Beverwyck Brewery was located in Albany, and was founded in 1872. After prohibition ended, “Beverwyck reopened in 1933 with six products. Beverwyck India Ale and Porter were produced from 1933 through 1944, while Beverwyck Ale, Bock, Beer and Irish Cream Ale were produced from 1933 to 1950 when the brewery was acquired by the F. & M. Schaefer Brewing Co of Brooklyn, New York. F. & M. Schaefer closed the brewery in 1972.” Everybody looks really happy to be on a picnic, even the bird is smiling. I think it must be because those beer bottles are huge.
It may be a little early, but this makes us at Noble Brewer very excited for St. Patrick’s Day!
You are lucky to live where you do. Here in Ontario, Canada it is still against the law to drink alcohol in a public park. Prohibition may of ended where you are, but not where we are.
