Beer Ads in Oshkosh No. 20: Something to Be Thankful For

Click to Enlarge
Here’s a tasty ad that appeared in the Oshkosh Daily Northwestern on November 26, 1935. The country was in the middle of the Great Depression when along comes the Oshkosh Brewing Company with something to be thankful for. The small type in the middle section of the ad is a little dodgy, but the words are worth repeating:

Chief Oshkosh
Pale Beer
(Pilsner Type)

Makes good food taste better. Blends.
It's brewed to bring out the the really delicious
flavor. After dinner settle back
for a whole day of peaceful enjoyment.
This Glass of Glowing Goodness (Chief
Oshkosh Pale Beer) will lead the way
to Thanksgiving and Good Cheer.

Have a happy Thanksgiving!
