Monday’s ad is for “Hamm’s Velvet,” from 1902. This ad was made for Hamm’s Brewing, which was founded in 1865 by Theodore Hamm in St. Paul, Minnesota. At its peak, it was the 5th largest brewery in America, and operated facilities in five cities, including San Francisco, L.A., Baltimore and Houston, in addition to the original brewery in Minnesota. This one features a well-to-do couple having dinner and a waiter is bringing them beer on a tray, with the tagline: “Well Brewed Beer For Well Bred People.” I’m not sure this ad has aged very well.
