Tuesday’s ad is for “Hamm’s,” from 1965. 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 shows what appears to be an empty canoe fishing in a river, with the tagline “From the land of sky blue waters … A wish for a Refreshing Centennial year.” This apparently was during Hamm’s centennial, but that is certainly not clear from the ad itself.
