Beer Factoid: July 3


Whoa, sorry, all! I changed to the night shift and dropped the ball on this one… here it is… too go not to post!

On this day in 1928, the first color TV broadcast occurred in London thanks to the Scottish inventor John Logie Baird.  Can you remember some of those old black and white beer commercials?  Here are a few commercials for Hamm’s Beer back in the 1950’s – 80’s (the 1st being in black and white).  We’ve come a long way since then, but I’m not sure the same animation could be used today due to the regulations of associating beer artwork/content with anything that would appeal to children.  Hmm… Hamm’s…
