Subject: beer commercials/songs
From: moongoddess
Date: 20 Jul 05 - 12:39 PM

I was watching a Red Sox game the other night and remembered back to the 60's when Narragansett Beer was the official beer of the Red Sox. Curt Gowdy would start each game with HI neighbor......, and the crowd would shout back, "have a Gansett".

There was a song that went:

"Hi neighbor, have a Gansett.
It always keeps its golden promise.
Each glass is as refreshing as the first.
It's quite a beer, that Gansett beer.
Hi neighbor, have ANOTHER Gansett,
"Cause it's the beer brewed just right for drinking.

The brewery, located in RI, closed in 1981 and so went the 20 year relationship between Narragansett beer and the Red Sox.

As we say in RI, "And there it was, gone."

"My" beer is Leinenkugel, fortunately saved from oblivion but not ruined by an infusion of Miller money. Alas, I am Leinenkugel-less, since I haven't been able to spend a couple weeks with my mother in Milwaukee for the past two years and bring home "provisions" (cheese curds, candy raisins, Usinger's summer sausage, and Leinenkugel).

The beer jingle, though, that permeates my beer swigging being, is Hamm's --

From the land of sky blue waters (waters)
Comes the beer refreshing
Hamm's the beer refreshing.

And those wonderful bear and miscellaneous woodland wildlife on the commercials, lamps, signs, etcet etcet.

Anybody remember a beer jingle for a Blatz product in the fifties -- Tempo?

Tempo, Tempo, T-E-M-P-O
Tempooooooo beer.

I am the proud owner of a Dr. Seuss illustrated "Gangway For Gansett!" beer tray with an Indian Chief on some sort of a prototype skateboard rolling downhill past a cat while holding a tray with a cold frosty mug and a bottle on it in one hand. He used to illustrate their ads before he became huge in children's book sales and no longer needed that sort of revenue. It might explain, however, how he saw all that stuff on Mulberry Street, though, and how hegot himself "On Beyond Zebra" on occaision. If he'd stuck with it,in later years, maybe Horton would have heard the Who on a brewery sponsored 10th annual farewell tour. (Come to think of it, Opera perfected those multiple farewell tours long before Rock, so that when Townshend co-opted Opera, it probably came with the territory......but I digress).

I used to drink Naragansett Porter out of longnecks when I'd go up to Maine. They were only American brewery I knew of back in those pre- MicroBrew days (and nights) that bottled the stuff, which I'd only known about from all those Irish drinking songs.

"The Beer Brewed Just Right For Drinking", eh?--As opposed to being for cooking crabs or pouring on garden slugs I guess. (That would have been "Glorious" Piels, or Hals or Iron City, I suppose).

At Phillies games it was,

Hey, get your cold beer
Get your ice cold Ballantine beer
It's the beer that's crisp and icily light
Cold clear taste that's precisely right
Frosty, lively, crystally clear
The crisp refresher
Ballantine, Ballantine beer

Seems like they were trying to tell you that Ballantine tasted just like a nice tall glass of ice water! (Which probably wasn't all that far from the truth.)

Jim, I'm sure you remember the one about the guy who found out his wife was having twins, so he ran out and got her a case of Schaefer.

A classic number in the New Orleans brass-band repertoire is "When We Danced at the Mardi Gras." When it's played by a brass band, of course, it's an instrumental and you don't hear the lyrics aned hence don't hear the title. A given tune can become fairly familiar even to a person who never learns its title.

When I first came to New Orleans, I'd hear the beginning of this song and think they were playing "My beer is Rheingold the dry beer." The first line or two of the two tunes are virtually identical, but the tunes become significantly different for the rest of the verse.

It was about 15-20 years before I fnally learned the true title (and heard the lyrics) of this song that I always associated with the big Rheingol sign above the center field clubhouse at the Polo Grounds.

One of two UK TV ads for Whitbread Best Bitter circa 1982
tune Abdul the Bulbul Emir

Now stories are told of a brave man of old
Whose interest was Whitbread best beer
But he new a klutz who drove him nearly nuts
That was Abdul the Bulbul Amir

Now that snake in the grass was a pain in the neck
Claiming Whitbread tastes best from the jar,
And this man most irate, with his own glass quite straight
Was Count Ivan Skavinsky Skavar.

Well those boastful old goats went out canvassing votes
But one thing they both did forget,
Be it straight glass or jar, Whitbread's not particular,
'Cos the best "Best" needs no etiquette.

Drink 'Red Barrel' near or far
In pub or club or any bar
It's always good wherever you are,
Drink Watney's keg Red Barrel

(Tune is vaguely the chorus from 'Come Landlord Fill The Flowing Bowel')

The original advertising jingle extolling the 'virtues' of keg beer. It is presurised, homogenised, fined, and served under pressure. It is designed to be capable of being transported great distances with no notable change in the taste (worse luck)

Did the verse really say 'draught'? or should that read 'Keg' the same as in the chorus?

I see from the above mentioned list that F.X. Matt no longer makes Utica Club. I misspent a lot of my college days at the Utica Club brewery in their replica 1890's bar drinking that crap and pumping quarters into the antique music machines. The beer they served was somehow far better than the stuff that made it into the cans and bottles. They also gave us Billy Beer, made in honor of Pres. Carter's late brother, which is probably one of the reasons they went under.

A friend of mine once told me that the New Lost City Ramblers did the music for a Stroh's Beer TV ad. Does anyone know if there's any truth to that rumor?

Thousands of years ago*, when I was but a smallish child in Chicago, I used to regularly hear a "singing commercial" for Edelweiss beer:

Drink Edelweiss
It tastes so nice
(forgot this line)
Drink Edelweiss

Which I revised to:

Drink Edelweiss
Kills rats and mice
It's worth the price
Drink Edelweiss

As I recall, Edelweiss was a local (Chicago) brand, and was still
being produced by the large brewery that acquired the label into the (nineteen) nineties.

Some goodies in there.
But the two that stand out are the "Watney's Red Barrel" which reminds me of the hilarious Monty Python sketch where the bloke goes into the travel agent to order a package tour and spends the next twenty minutes droning on and on and on and on and on and on and on ...................... you get the picture.......................about previous ones and the Watney's Red Barrel line crops up regularly.

The other was Pabst Blue Ribbon - again a comedy link - Wayne & Schuster who did a brilliant sketch called "A Shakespearean Ball Game" where the entire dialogue was conducted in Shakespearian idiom and using quotes from, as well as alluding to, Shakespearean plays

Foolestroupe reminded me of the alcoholic lemonade - - - it was indeed called "Two Dogs" and it was pretty good. Stopped drinking it for a while and then when I went looking for it once - couldn't locate it and then over time forgot about it - bloody nice drop.

However we have two offerings from Australia:

A common and long-running ad for Victoria Bitter (I hate the stuff) has this "poem" that goes sort of "You can get it Towing, You can get it mowing, you can get it milking a cow - -- matter of fact; I've got it now. A big thirst needs a big cold beer and the best cold beer is Vic! Victoria Bitter."
Crap beer but an emotive ad.

Best beer commercial of all time has GOT to be the latest one promoting 'Carlton Draught' beer.

It is a 'chant' to the tune and rhytm of "O Fortuna" from Orffs 'Carmina Burana'

"This is an ad . . . .
It's a big ad . . . .
This is a ve - - e - - ry b - i - g a- - - - - d!
etc.
It involves "hundreds" of people rushing together in robes of differing colours - some as a human figure - others in the shape of a glass of beer complete with 'head' and finally as the ad comes to a close the figure has its arm upraised with the glass in hand and the beer 'pouring out of the glass, into the open mouth, down the throat and then 'swirling around' down in the 'stomach'

Incredibly clever and well done.

BTW - all praise to 'moongoddess' for bringing this subject up in relation to "America's Team" the Boston Red Sox. Was 'drafted as a supprter by an American friend about 4 years ago and was just as delighted as she when we won the World Series - especially as we knocked off the Yankees to do it!

Addition to the above:

Posted and then remembered a beer commercial I got sent by a friend for Miller's Beer.

A guy walking acrossa field with an obviously Scottish Loch in the background. He walks past the camera and then steps back into shot and says:
   "When I told my friends I was going to Auchtermuchtie, they said:
    'Wear the Fox hat'!"

If you say that last bit quickly it sounds like "Where the f***'s that?"

No jingle but another bloody clever ad

Up above, Earl posted this jingle:
    Oh brew me no brew with artificial bubbles
    Those carbonated beers of today
    But Utica Club will still take the trouble
    To age beer the natural way
    Utica Club, UC

At song circle last night, somebody sang a Utica Club jingle that sounded almost like the tune of "Away With Rum," and had the line, "We don't brew with artificial bubbles." Anybody know this one?
It's unclear in this Wikipedia article whethere Utica Club is still being sold. The brewery was damaged in a fire in May, 2008. Partial operations were moved to other locations, but it sounds like this beer may be hard to find nowadays.

Thanks for the link, gargoyle! I enjoyed hearing Les Paul and Mary Ford doing those Rheingold commercials. Guy Lombardo and his Royal Canadians also did them: same jingles but their way. I think Rheingold spent more on an advertising than on brewing their beer.

It is becoming obvious (to me)- over the past half-decade....that while we may share a common language the Brits and the Yanks are more than a "pond" apart.

I would suggest - that the Mudcat use the already established URL origins and denote posters from the UK and posters from the good ol' U.S.A.

Okay, it's not a jingle. But I remember an animated commercial for Gunther beer. I saw this in Washington D.C. in either the late '50s or, possibly, the early '60s (the '50s is more likely.)

A maestro/conductor is standing on a podium, in front of an orchestra, and he says "Give me a G." Immediately, a bottle of Gunther beer appears in the air.

He says "Give me a G major", and a bottle of Gunther beer with a military hat on appears in the air.

He says "Give me a G minor", and a bottle of Gunther beer with a miner's hardhat and lamp on appears in the air.

He says "Give me a G on a scale", and a bottle of Gunther beer standing on one side of a pan balance appears.

Increasingly frustrated, he says "Give me a G I can hear", and a bottle of Gunther beer appears in the air, slowly pouring into a mug (we hear the glug, glug, glug sound as it pours.)

Admitting defeat, the conductor leaves the symphony hall and trudges down the street, muttering to himself "I ask for a G ... they give me a G ..."), and he notices that he is standing right outside a tavern. So he says "Why not?"

He goes into the tavern and says "Give me a nice, cool G!", and the bartender and all of the other patrons turn to him and hum a G chord. I think he faints at that point.

I couldn't find it on YouTube. Maybe I didn't look hard enough.

Ok, this is an old one:

The tune was "Scotland the Brave", or at least part of it. Carnegie Mellon University was once called Carnegie Institute of Technology, Tech for short. Tech had a damn fine pipe band. (As does CMU.) ergo the Scottish theme. The song was sung by a well formed blond cartoon lady, in kilt and tam o shanter.

Chicago's Edelweiss beer had a jingle to a piece of classical music that Stephen Barr partly remembered above, but there was more to it. I haven't heard it in more than the sixty years since I left the Chicao area (Elmhurst, actually), but when my wife and I went into a movie theater the other day, the classical music was playing and most the words came instantly to mind:
Drink Edelweiss, it tastes so nice,
It tastes so nice, drink Edelweiss.
To quench your thirst, remember first,
Drink good old Edelweiss

The second "It tastes so nice" may have been another phrase, but it escapes me

my da was the plant doctor for the Carling brewery in Cleveland when I was a kid in the forties, fifties and sixties-It was the beer for the Indians and the Browns games, the only sports besides high school football that mattered there. Da felt a sense of loyalty to his employer. so he would drink no other, and we always had a case or two of the stuff around for an eleven year old to try. Da actually got me a 78 record with the "Hey Mabel" song on one side, and a instrumental march version on the other. The Cleveland joke of the time was "Hey Mabel, get off the table, the money's for the beer!" . Not, unfortunately, on the recording....
