Beer for Men

#1

Post by BrooklynBeer » Thu Nov 08, 2018 9:03 am

Just picked up a nice Tavern Pale Dry beer with the slogan "Sure it's Different.... It's Brewed For Men" across the bottom and it got me wondering just how many "Beer for Men" themed cans are out there.

Bavarian Brewing of Covington, Kentucky.

From 1947 through 1952 they ran nearly 100 ads that consisted of photo of an activity or sporting event that was viewed as a man’s territory. Their product was never really pictured in the ads. Several line of text mentioned the subject matter in the image and that transitioned to promotional text regarding their beer. Here’s some examples.

Found two variations of a Bavarian Brewing ad. First one is from Cincinnati and four days later the one from Dayton is somewhat more bold in it's statements.
