Lion Brewery – Advertising Fun Gibbons

LionGibbonsProof Today we wander even further from beer labels into some Gibbons advertising. This one comes to us courtesy of jesskidden and it shows an print ad from 26 Sept 1952. The ad features the tag line “The Proof is in the Taste"—Best-liked Beer in town because Gibbons is the best-tasting Beer! Have a Gibbons and Prove it to yourself! If it’s Gibbons it’s always Good—The Lion Inc. Gibbons brewery Wilkes-Barre”

Lion Brewery – Label Fun Lion Beer

13 December 2009

LionLionBeerLabelWhat label says Lion Brewery MORE than Lion Beer? Here we have the classic green Lion Beer label. I suspect this is a mid 1930’s vintage label, but please correct me. The label does carry a 1933 copyright and IRS tax label and PA permit.

LionBlueHenLabel And so the label fun continues….I present for you Blue Hen Beer…this looks fairly recent and I just love the little hen standing on the soldier’s shoulder. Nothing says beer like a hen ;)

Lion Brewery – Label Fun Boardy Barn brew

07 December 2009

LionboardyLabel And the Lion label beat goes on….Today’s label is the Boardy Barn Brew…correct that…it’s the “World Famous Boardy Barn Brew Fine Lager Beer.” This is apparently a bar in the Hampton’s in New York and I love the “Take the Party Home” slogan….I guess they don’t realize “home” is Wilkes-Barre, PA.

Lion Brewery – Label Fun Bartels Extra Light

01 December 2009

LionBartelsNewLabelThis may (or may not) be our last Professor Bartel’s label in the bunch…guess we’ll see. Of interest in this one is that the label says Edwardsville, PA (not Wilkes-Barre). I present to you Bartel’s Extra Light beer. I also remind you to submit your labels…we’ve been running this series one label every other day since Sept and here we are in Dec with no end in sight.
