Beer In Ads #2692: What’ll You Have With Fish

Thursday’s ad is for Pabst Blue Ribbon, from 1952. Starting in the early 1950s, Pabst started a new ad campaign with the tagline “What’ll You Have” which lasted for a few years. They were colorful ads, and often had the tagline spelled out in creative ways. In this ad, “What’ll You Have” is written into the grill where they’re cooking some fish, specifically “fresh-caught bass — sizzling on the fire.” Cans of PBR are chilling in a bucket of ice. Unfortunately, I am not a fan of seafood, and apart from Fish & Chips, pretty much avoid it whenever possible, so this looks pretty unappetizing to me, but I’m confident many people would eat it with great pleasure.
