Vintage Beer Commercials Are Still Pretty Awesome

Back on September 27, 2011, I published my original BuzzFeed post, Vintage Beer Commercials Are Awesome. 200 BuzzFeed posts later, it turns out they still are.

This first post of mine was posted 2 years, 4 months, and 16 days ago. It was a simpler time in BuzzFeed. As of today, it has 6,280 total views. Back then, that was pretty good for a post on BuzzFeed.

Be advised, a lot of these come with some pretty intense ethnic, racial, gender, etc. stereotypes, which are less than awesome.

Here are the original six vintage commercials:

1. Utica Club

2. Schaefer #1

3. Rheingold

4. Hamm’s

5. Pabst Blue Ribbon

6. Schaefer #2

In the spirit of BuzzFeed, here are a few more pretty awesome vintage beer commercials

Wasn’t life simpler before professional sports and girls were used to sell suds?

7. Piel’s

8. Genesee

9. Budweiser

10. Labatt’s

11. National Beer

12. Carling Black Label

13. Ballantine

14. Stag

15. Narragansett

Nice drunk driving joke!
