Vintage Beer Girls of Yesterday 2.12.2013

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.

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.
