Beer In Ads #3905: Hamm’s Preferred Stock And New Brew

Wednesday’s ad is for “Hamm’s,” from the later 1800s or early 1900s, I’m not too sure. 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 Gibson Girl framed inside a frame (how meta), with the tagline: “Hamm’s Beer ‘Leads Them All,'” and at the bottom of the poster it reads: “Preferred Stock and New Brew.”
