Beer as Health Food

I’ve posted before about the fascinating digital collections at the University of Washington Libraries. Tooling through the early advertising archive today I came across these old Rainier beer ads from turn of the century Seattle and surrounding areas. They seem to be trying to expand their customer base by marketing Rainier as a healthful tonic for women, children, and old people. Gesundheit, Grandpa!
