Beer In Ads #903: Falstaff Hunting

Wednesday’s ad is for Falstaff, from some time in the late 1940s or 50s, I’m guessing. I think it’s most likely the original artwork for ad ad, and it’s signed by the well-known illustrator J.F. Kernan, who passed away in 1958. Kernan was also known for his many Saturday Evening Post covers, similar to Norman Rockwell. This one shows a hunter out in the woods, reaching for his rifle, which was resting on top of a case of Falstaff beer, as a deer runs by in the background.
