Monday’s ad originally was published September 15, 1958 and is for Miller High Life, “The Champagne of Bottled Beer.” It’s a beautiful illustration of a man playing chess with only the beer, bottle and Miller logo in color. The art has an MC Escher quality to it, and though it’s signed, even at the original size I can’t make out who it was. The detail in the illustration is wonderful, especially the chess pieces.

I have made the same mistake for decades (I’m 56). I thought it was the “champagne of bottleD beer” but, as shown in your poster, it’s “bottle”.
Now we all know ….
