      Dearfolk,
      Schaefer, Schaefer Light, Stroh's, and Stroh Light are all available in cans in Athens, Georgia. My nearby Winn/Dixie Supermarket sells them for budget prices. I wouldn't give you anything for Schaefer, but Stroh's remains a quality beer (it has a nice little sourish Pilsener taste to it, like the real good ones from Europe), even if it isn't "fire-brewed" any more.
      Patiently, Ort. Carlton in Still-Yuengling-Dry Athens, Georgia.
      P. S. Yuengling is now sold in South Carolina, North Carolina, and Florida... but not Georgia (as of yet).

        That was done to the "Mexican Shuffle" record by Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass. Gee, I actually thought it was the Tendermint Shuffle.... Clark's also made Sour Lemon Chewing Gum - boy, was it tarrrrrt!

            I must confess that I own a copy on my Best of Tijuana Brass. I used to play my trumpet along with Herb's records -- to the dismay of everyone else in the house.

              I'm not sure of that third "wall again" rhyme, because this goes back to 1959 when the Atlanta Carling plant opened (only to close a few years later)... I was nine or ten. The building still stands on Empire Boulevard in Southwest Atlanta, immediately adjacent to I-75, northeast of the airport.
              Did Hull's (New Haven, CT.) have any jingles? Now that was a good local beer!

                Vince,
                National Beer is a brand from South America (I can't remember which country) in addition to being one of Baltimore's historic brands. I remember hearing beer ads in English and Spanish on Cuban radio before Castro took over; brands I was unfamiliar with (of course I was, like, 11 when the coup took place).

                    Beloved,
                    It has not been my intention to hog space; I've simply replied where I noted or felt the need to... which now brings me to my actual post!

                    1) Wouldn't you like to have a real Dutch cookie?

                    2) Wet, cold, and delicious...
                    National Bohemian Beer!

                    3) National Beer, National Beer -
                    Wet, cold, delicious National Beer...
                    And while I'm singing, I'm proud to say
                    It's brewed on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay!!

                    4) Country Club Malt Liquor - aged three times longer than beer.
                    No wonder there's a difference...
                    Aged three times longer than beer.
                    Three times, three times, three times - yes, three times longer than beer.
                    (Announcer tag) "M. K. Goetz Company, St. Joseph, Missouri."

                    5) Now - does ANYONE remember the dreadfully bad Suffer Dandles commercials for Schlitz? He was worse than Mrs. Miller.
                    "Here's Suffer Dandles for Schlitz." Then he would come on and saing a rat tuneless sawng whal strumin his geetar out of tune wharng wharng. Then you heard someone say "Ugh!" and a door slammed. - A Schlitz point-of-sale piece from that time read "Suffer now we must."

                    6) There was also a series of "The Journeymen for Schlitz" during the folk music craze, circa 1963. I own a couple of Journeymen albums on Capitol. Now... can anyone tell me what famous fellow was in that group? Dinner is on me for the first correct answer.

                          M&M, wait until thaw time and we'll find a way to meet up. I was completely serious... I owe you a dinner, either youraways, myaways, or somewhere in between where we can eventually meet up.
                          This thread made my already-fine day even better. Gracious sakes, I love you people....
                          Sincerely, Ort. Carlton in Athens, GA.


                          Hum, don't know about your, meaning Athens, way. The last time I was in Athens - about 1975 or so - my beloved Crimson Tide was being reduced to a slow trickle between The Hedges. Dean Rusk, the former Sec. of State was prancing down the middle of the street yelling "We beat 'Bama". Not a pleasant introduction to your fair city. But I suppose what's past is past and perhaps come the spring thaw I'll take you up on the offer.

                            Vince,
                            National Beer is a brand from South America (I can't remember which country) in addition to being one of Baltimore's historic brands. I remember hearing beer ads in English and Spanish on Cuban radio before Castro took over; brands I was unfamiliar with (of course I was, like, 11 when the coup took place).
                            Internationally, Ort. Carlton in Athens, GA. (Where Cuban AM Skywave Bounces In At Night, Especially In The Summer).


                            Really! Mind you, I was 11 when I heard the ad - wouldn't do for me to be up on beer at the time.

                            For tv ads my favorite was Strohs. One in particular came off looking like a PSA - a dad enters his son's room to discuss what he does with his friends, pointedly asks 'Do you drink beer?' Son answers 'Of course I drink beer...(we finally see him)...I'm 35 years old!' Dad replies 'Well, I just want to make sure you're drinking *good* beer, son...'

                              Great thread with a lot of memories. In my opinion,one of the worst:

                              Meow meow meow meow
                              meow meow meow meow
                              And so on and so on.

                                Yes, but dogs love cheese -- bacon?

                                  Grampy,
                                  That was done to the "Mexican Shuffle" record by Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass. Gee, I actually thought it was the Tendermint Shuffle.... Clark's also made Sour Lemon Chewing Gum - boy, was it tarrrrrt!
                                  Unchompingly, Ort. Carlton in Gum-Under-My-Seat-But-I-Didn't-Put-It-There Athens, Georgia.


                                  I must confess that I own a copy on my Best of Tijuana Brass. I used to play my trumpet along with Herb's records -- to the dismay of everyone else in the house.




                                  Not only do I also own a copy, I've played it more than once this week: my two-year-old is digging it, and I'll do anything to avoid little-kid music. So far, so good. She likes a lot of 70s funk.

                                    I love regional commercials because they're so awful. Any Northeasterners rememeber Ruby and Choo-Choo advertising Railroad Salvage stores?

                                    Or the ad for some fake jewelry with a close up at the end...it's a blonde woman who says completely unconvincingly, "Wow. What a bargain. How do I order?".

                                      Ah, Ruby and Choo-Choo. We had an ad for a local restaurant, now gone, where the played the guitar and sang Born to Eat. He then ended with "Mm-mmm good," which was as convincing as if he had just eaten a five-pound box of 10-penny nails.

                                            Hull's did not have any jingles that I can recall. I grew up drinking Hull's. One of my uncles worked at the brewery, and he gave my father several quart bottles of Hull's every week. My father would pour me a small glass of it whenever he had some himself. When I was in high school in New Haven our football coach would tell us to go home and drink a beer to replace the fluids we sweated out in practice. My replacement fluid was always Hull's.

                                              Here's a jingle from a TV commercial for cigarettes. Remember when it was OK to advertise cigarettes on TV? When did they stop doing that...late '70s?

                                              "You've come a long way, baby...
                                              To get where you've got to today,
                                              You've got Virginia Slims now, baby...
                                              You've come a long, long way!"

                                                If you've got the time, we've got the beer, Miller beer.
                                                Miller tastes too good to hurry through.
                                                But when it's time to relax, Miller stands clear, beer after beer.

                                                    Tasted like Kix but in the shape of animal crackers, but smaller I think. The song goes: "Here goes crispy critters, the good wholesome bunch. The low-sugar cereal with lots of cah-runch! They're indubitably delicious!" The commercials featured a little girl who couldn't say "indubitably"



                                                    Or better yet -- and earlier still....: "The one and only cereal / that comes in the shape of animals."

                                                        1. To the tune of "Ain't We Got Fun?"
                                                        Little Friskies, Little Friskies
                                                        Ain't we got fun?
                                                        By the bowlful, by the bagful...
                                                        Ain't we got fun?

                                                        2. To the tune of "Old Time Rock N Roll"
                                                        Just take those Little Friskies off the shelf.
                                                        I can knock 'em down by myself.
                                                        When I got Little Friskies in my bowl,
                                                        It makes me wanna just Looooooooooooose control!

                                                          One cartoon ad that was too bizarre to be irritating was for a kids' baked product, the name of which I do not recall. A woman came riding out on an egg beater singing:

                                                          I'm somebody's,

                                                            This idiotic ad is still running in my neck of the woods:

                                                            Oh mama don't you fix me no more meatloaf,
                                                            Don't want no mac and cheese,
                                                            I want some fun piled on a bun
                                                            I want a Manwich please.

                                                            Not sure about that first line, but it's something about meat loaf. Can you imagine a reasonably intelligent person passing up homemade meat loaf and mac and cheese for a Manwich???
