Vintage Budweiser Print Advertisements
As you may have picked up, I like vintage stuff. If I had the means, I may have led a different life filled with shades of ‘Diggers’, ‘West End Salvage’ or ‘American Pickers’. I like vintage signs, brand promotional items, antique hardware, furniture, all kinds of things. Vintage print ads are no exception. Here are a few old Budweiser print ads from years past. I selected these because they all have a western, frontier or country ‘theme’. Some of you may have seen them around before. If not, enjoy.

Keo Premium Beer Straight From Cyprus
The Brewski Report Reviews Keo Premium Beer and A Lament For Better Times.
File Date: 8.21.2011
File Name: Are Cyprus’ Politicians Any Better Than The American Variety?
The Beer: Keo Premium Beer
Type: American Adjunct Lager
Stats: 4.5% ABV
Brewer: Keo Limited
Web Site: http://www.keogroup.com/
State/Country of Origin: Cyprus
Brewer Info: KEO is a public limited company formed in 1927 with its shares quoted and trading in the Cyprus Stock Exchange. It is a member of the Hellenic Mining Group whose varied interests in mining, cement production, consumer goods and banking make it the largest industrial group in Cyprus. The KEO Brewery was the first to be built in Cyprus. Production of KEO Beer -a Pilsner type Lager Beer- started early in 1951. The original brewery had a small production capacity of about 300,000 gallons annually. In order to meet the ever-increasing demand, the company has carried out substantial extensions to the plant and the equipment now used being the most up-to-date machinery in the brewing industry. The brewery is currently capable of producing over 30,000 hectoliters of beer monthly.
Brewer Brand Hype: KEO is an exceptional lager type beer, brewed from the finest malt and the choicest hops, long matured, bottled fresh and unpasteurised, to retain its natural flavour, aroma and freshness.
Label: Gold medal for excellence Brewing International Awards. Brewed on the island of Cyprus.
The Brewski Review: American Adjunct Lagers always seem to taste the same. This one may have had a little more flavor but it isn’t anything to write home about. Definitely not worth paying a premium in price over a domestic brand. I guess the only cache would be to brag about drinking beer from Cyprus. Whoop-de-do. What would impress me would be drinking this beer IN Cyprus. Then it would have some unique appeal. But, to drink it in a broken down town in a financially busted state isn’t anything to get excited about. It should actually propel me be purchase the cheapest beer I can find and drink in mass quantities to relieve myself from the thought of all the crooked, power hungry and dishonest elected officials we have and how they’re wrecking it for the rest of us. I think if I wasn’t underwater on my mortgage I’d move somewhere else. This lament, I’m sure, isn’t shared by myself alone.
Drinkability: Ah, probably.
Appearance: Very light golden color.
The Buds: Average adjunct lager.
TBR Cap Rating: 3.5 caps out of 5.
Educational Tidbit: In case you didn't know where all the wars, oil, men with speedos and Cyprus are, please review the map above.
I'd pull up a beach chair here and drink a native KEO Premium Beer.

Digging deep in the archives we uncovered a story we like to call ‘BeerGate’. This photograph was tucked away in a file folder so deep in paperwork we wondered who, what, how and why. The image speaks for itself and is bound to blow the lid off the age old secret of how to properly drink a beer. I’m sure many people THINK they know how to drink a beer, but sit back and review this educational tidbit so you don’t dribble the golden liquid down the front of your nice, fancy, food-stained tank top. Enjoy!
So you think you know how to properly drink a beer? This age-old vintage educational pictogram tells the real story.

Desert Harvest Moon Rising. Can you hear the coyote's calling?

File Name: What Is A Harvest Moon?
The harvest moon is the moon at or about the period of fullness that is nearest to the autumnal equinox. The harvest moon is often mistaken for the modern day hunter’s moon.
All full moons rise around the time of sunset. However, although in general the moon rises about 50 minutes later each day, as it moves in orbit around Earth, the Harvest Moon and Hunter’s Moon are special, because around the time of these full moons, the time difference between moonrise on successive evenings is shorter than usual which means that the moon rises approximately 30 minutes later, from one night to the next, as seen from about 40 degrees N. or S. latitude, for several evenings around the full Hunter’s or Harvest Moons. Thus there is no long period of darkness between sunset and moonrise around the time following these full moons. In times past this feature of these autumn moons was said to help farmers working to bring in their crops (or, in the case of the Hunter’s Moon, hunters tracking their prey). They could continue being productive by moonlight even after the sun had set. Hence the name Harvest Moon. The reason for the shorter-than-usual rising time between successive moonrises around the time of the Harvest and Hunter’s Moon is that the ecliptic—the plane of Earth’s orbit around the sun—makes a narrow angle with respect to the horizon in the evening in autumn.
The Harvest Moon is said to come before or after the autumnal equinox. It is simply the full moon closest to that equinox. About once every four years it occurs in October (in the northern hemisphere), depending on the cycles of the moon. Currently, the latest the Harvest Moon can occur is on October 7. Often, the Harvest Moon seems to be bigger or brighter or more colorful than other moons. These effects are related to the seasonal tilt of the earth. The warm color of the moon shortly after it rises is caused by light from the moon passing through a greater amount of atmospheric particles than when the moon is overhead. The atmosphere scatters the bluish component of moonlight (which is really reflected white light from the sun), but allows the reddish component of the light to travel a straighter path to one’s eyes. Hence all celestial bodies look reddish when they are low in the sky.
The apparent larger size is because the brain perceives a low-hanging moon to be larger than one that’s high in the sky. This is known as a Moon Illusion and it can be seen with any full moon. It can also be seen with constellations; in other words, a constellation viewed low in the sky will appear bigger than when it is high in the sky.
