Pure beer at only one penny a pint! Who could resist it? What this 1939 advert – from a vintage copy of Picture Post – fails to tell us however is whether or not there is any trace of alcohol in the stuff. Nevertheless, I would be tempted to send of for a tin and give it a try but it looks as though the company went out of business many years ago. So at the pub tonight it looks like I will have to make do with beer brewed by a brewer. Never mind, good health my dear.
