Vintage Beer Ads
Today, there are many regulations in the advertising of alcohol. Before these laws were put into place, there were many ads put out that seem shocking today. Perhaps the most shocking I came across is an ad for Blatz Beer. It features a mother with her baby, and tries to promote Blatz Beer as a nourishing, essential drink for mothers and babies. It claims to provide benefits for the mother, which the baby will in turn feel as well. It just seems so shocking; I cannot believe this was ever a real advertisement. You would never see anything like this today, that’s for sure!
