Beer In Ads #2783: Every Sip … Like A Trip To Snow Country

Thursday’s ad is for Genesee Beer, which was founded in Rochester, New York, originally along the Genesee River, but in 1878 they moved up into Rochester proper. Their Genesee Cream Ale, in the simple green can, was one of our go-to beers when I was in high school. Since 2009, the brewery has been part of North American Breweries. This ad, from 1970, features a full mug of beer with a background of a winter stream. I don’t understand the fascination with the giant slop of foam that spills over and down the side of the glass that is so common in all of these, and many other, ads at this period of time. They look somewhat unnatural.
