There is a growing sentiment that temper?
ance is surest and best promoted by the use of
P?bst Blue Ribbon, which contains less than 3/4%
of alcohol. The use of Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer
satisfies the natural desire for a mild stimulant
without creating a habit for strong drink. In
countries where the most beer is consumed, in?
temperance is rarest.
abst Blue Ribbon
The Beer of Quality
is so rich in the food values of Pabst Eight-Day
Malt, and in the tonic properties of the choicest
hops, that it is a genuine health-builder.
The system frequently requires a mild stimulant,
which is supplied by the small percentage of alcohol
which produces no injurious effects. The ex?
tractives of malt and hops aid the digestion and
soothe the nerves, making Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer
the ideal temperance drink.
When ordering beer, ask
for Pabst Blue Ribbon.
