All the Nips Fit to Print #2: Goebel Beer

Taking a page (yes, pun intended) from Jay Brooks’s Beer in ads series, we welcome you to a series on vintage nip (or ponies, splits, pocket torpedoes, etc) print ads, sales sheet, and labels.

We came into this wellspring courtesy of a home-historian by the nom de bière Jess Kidden. Here we have Goebel Beer, from the brewery that operated in Detroit from 1936-1964, before its eventual acquisition by Stroh’s. We love the copy in this ad from 1948:

It’s Goebel Beer…the good-tasting beer in the original Bantam bottle

Try it for size…it’s 7 ounces, one good glassful!

Try it for taste…it’s right from the cypress casks at Goebel!

Taste the reason why Goebel outsells all other beer in small bottles! Learn why Goebel is nationally famous for good taste!…
