More digging through old Atlantic Advocates today has yielded another gem of an advertisement! This old India Beer advert, from 1959, has to be one of my favorite. Note the label is like the one on the timeline, giving us a little more confidence that the diagonal India label was around for most of the 1950’s (that’s the bottle label, not the head stock one). I especially love the slogan “What Newfoundlanders Make, Makes Newfoundlanders,” which would be a great slogan for a contemporary craft brewery.
Just a note: I’m guessing this was in the June issue due to Cabot’s landfall in Newfoundland somewhere near June 24, 1497. This would have been just in time for the “Cabot 462” celebration!
