“Hamm’s Beer 1950’s TV commercial snippet”

During Prohibition, the company survived by producing soft drinks and other food products, enabling it to expand rapidly through acquisitions after the repeal of Prohibition in 1933.From 1933 until 1965 Hamm’s saw much success; much of this can attributed to William C. Figge Jr. taking over as President in 1951.

Figge expanded the Hamm’s brand into a national entity with breweries in St. Paul, Minnesota; Los Angeles, California; San Francisco, California; Baltimore, Maryland; and Houston, Texas.

The latter two were short-lived and closed soon after they opened.As the company celebrated its 100th anniversary, the family decided to sell the brewery and leave the ever more competitive brewing industry to focus on its other ventures like its successful real estate company.Wikipedia

  1. There’s nothing like a good cold beer. So many beers today out fizz and out froth the old beers like Hamms with a better taste too. A lot of competition is on the beerfront. Enjoy.

  2. Hello AOC. I’m not sure if I ever heard of this now-defunct brewery. Beer, though, is a big interest of mine. With dinner tonight I plan to have a bottle of Anchor Steam beer, which is an excellent brew. It’s brewed in San Francisco.

  3. In Germany and many other European countries, beer drinking is a norm for all family members. From my understanding, (alcohol content is usually large)l agers and ales were better moderated by the use of yeast. In America after the prohibition and with the advent of tv, the creation and marketing of alcohol beverages became an opened field. 🤔 My thoughts.
