Budweiser: Palatable, Healthful, Nutritious. Instrinsically Good.

Here’s a cool advertisement for Budweiser in the Washington Times. This is from 1917 and what’s interesting, of course, is that the sale of alcoholic beverages would be banned the following year with the beginning of Prohibition. Luckily, we don’t live in such bleak times and you can now drink your beer from a Ghosts of DC stein or pint glass.
