Beer In Ads #743: Preparing The Thanksgiving Feast

Thursday’s ad is for Ballantine Ale, called “Preparing the Thanksgiving Feast,” it’s from 1953. The ad features a great illustration showing a cut-out of the interior of a home getting ready to serve a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. It’s not exactly how my Thanksgiving looked, but it’s close. What I really love is the poem below the illustration.

Thanksgiving Day is here at last …
     The family’s come from far and near.
The kitchen’s smelling mighty nice;
     And Dad’s got Ballantine on ice.
That’s the beer we like best …
     Deep-brewed to meet the “icebox test.”
We chill the bottles thoroughly …
     Flavor that chill can’t kill, you see!

Priceless. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
