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.
All cowboy-ed up and no place to hang out except the fence.

Early 'Doomsday Preppers'....when doomsday could of been any day of the week if you didn't shoot it, fix it, chop it, gather it, herd it, milk it, grow it or cook it yourself.
A Great Wonder of the World....and the Grand Canyon too!

Yes. They used beer girls to sell beer way back when. The same sales approached that worked then still works now – albeit with skimpier clothes. Take a look at a few of these old vintage promotional pieces. There was bold colors to catch the eye but the beer itself wasn’t a prominent fixture in the ad. I like vintage classic Elvgren pin ups myself.

Classic Gil Elvgren general beer promotional piece. He had to pay the bills somehow.
Another Gil Elvgren promotional piece. This one for A-1 Pilsner beer.
Typical Gil Elvgren painting. These probably didn't pay the bills at the time as much as his work for Napa, Coka Cola and others.

This reporter has to wonder if this is the flag they fly over the Commonwealth in Canberra?
This Would Make For A Nice State Flag Wouldn't It?

Here are a few vintage bud advertisements that make you wish for simpler times. I was just a glimmer in my mother’s eye when these ads saw their debut, but it still makes me yearn for a time before cell phones, cable news, wi-fi, rap music, bad 80’s hairstyles and celebrities who aren’t. Ahhhh!
Aren't you glad? Springtime is a happy time. And the best place to be is close to a bud. Cold, refreshing Budweiser....the King of Beers.
KNOW HIM! He's the easiest man in town to meet. Just visit your friendly tavern and ask for Budweiser....King of Beers.
I penned a post on 7.29.10 for Killians Irish Red that notes what my bartender would look like if I owned my own place. This smartly dressed man is what I pictured. Not a punk with a nose/ear/belly ring in a graphic tee shirt advertising his favorite band. Oh yeah, I dig that vintage light behind him as well.
Does anyone remember paying $0.25 for a beer? This would be a great vintage sign to have. Although, the only place my wife would allow me to hang it would probably be the garage or basement.
