Beer In Ads #3942: Then Came Hamm’s

Friday’s ad is for “Hamm’s,” from the 1970s. 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 drawing of a cowboy drinking a mug of beer, with the tagline “When you asked for a beer on the 1865 frontier; you were asking for trouble. Then came Hamm’s.”
