You must drink beer not only
made pure, but kept pure.
Purity exceeds all other costs in
our brewery. We even filter the air in which
Schlitz is cooled. We scald every tub, keg and
barrel, every pipe and pump, every time we use it.
Then, instead of putting pure beer in light glass
bottles we use Brown Botdes.
Light starts decay even in pure beer. Dark glass gives
the best protection against light. The' Brown Bottle pro
tects Schlitz purity from the brewery to your glass.
We began in a hut, sixty years ago. Today our agencies
dot the earth. Our output exceeds a million barrels a year.
More and more people each year are drinking Schlitz.
Why don't you, too, drink only pure beer Schlitz in
