Friday’s ad is the end of this week’s theme of Acme Beer and illustrator George Petty. These two works of art were most likely used in beer advertising, though exactly when and for which brewery is a mystery. Petty did a number of ads for Acme Beer, so that seems like the best guess, but I really can’t be sure. Still, they’re great, stylized paintings with beer.
Here’s the first one, in which a man and woman clink their beer glasses together in a toast.
And the second, also showing a finely dressed couple at night.
