It’s been several months since I’ve done a Top 10 list, primarily because it’s been too hard to keep up with them weekly. So I think I’ll try once a month instead. I’ve been collecting old beer slogans for a project (more on that later) and so I thought I’d pick my ten favorite ones. I should stress — though it should be obvious — that my choices are about the efficacy of the slogans themselves, regardless of the way I might feel about the beer itself. So for my 19th Top 10 List, I present my favorite beer slogans. Let me know your faves. Here’s List #19:
Top 10 Beer Slogans
It was, as always, really difficult to keep the list to ten, and a great many colorful beer slogans were left on the cutting room floor, mostly newer ones since I focused on older ones in the list above. Here’s a few more that might have made the list had I gone for more modern slogans:
Always a Good Decision. Samuel Adams; Drink in the World. Sapporo; Hooray Beer! Red Stripe; Life Is What You Pour Into It. Pyramid; Off-Cented Ales For Off-Centered People. Dogfish Head; You’re Not Worthy. Stone
And here’s a few older one I also like but didn’t have room for in the Top 10:
Always Smooth, Even When You’re Not. Keystone; The beer that made Milwaukee famous. Schlitz; Believe. Guinness; The Champagne of Bottled Beers. Miller High Life; For the man who really knows beer. Ortlieb; If I wanted water, I would have asked for water. Labatt Blue; It doesn’t get any better than this. Old Milwaukee; It’s what’s inside that truly counts. Dreher; When you say Budweiser, you’ve said it all. Budweiser; When you see the three-ring-sign, ask the man for Ballantine. Ballantine Ale
Let me know your favorites, and if you see any that you think should have made the list, please post a comment.
