Beer: The Best Medicine

beer ad

A doctor recommending beer to his patient was perfectly normal one hundred years ago. This Schlitz ad from 1904 has the quack endorsing beer. So why is it good for you? Well, like the ad says, “The hops form a tonic; the barley a food. The trifle of alcohol os an aid to digestion. And the custom of drinking beer supplies the body with fluid to wash out the waste. People who don’t drink beer seldom drink enough fluid of any kind. A great deal of ill-health is caused by the lack of it.”

So there you go, who needs a second opinion?

Just take two of these and don’t call me in the morning.

Cheers!
