Budweiser in Newfoundland

Thus far I have really only been posting about old breweries and beer brands that were brewed in Newfoundland. Of course, that’s not the full story. Many breweries, just as they do now, were brewing big name brands under licence in Newfoundland. Others beers were imported and distributed by local companies (like the Lindberg Beer Company, who distributed Bass and Guinness). This advert, from the June 20, 1914, Evening Telegram (found in the Memorial University of Newfoundland’s digitized collection), is evidence of Budweiser’s early history in Newfoundland as distributed by J.D. Ryan.
