“Beer: Sparkling, golden, pure, refreshing. A beverage as old as history…”
I’m surfing the web on a Saturday morning – a little hung over from last night – and I came across this 1952 beer promotional film “As we like it”.
It’s a fantastic film of the times made some 60 years ago. I love looking at the people, technologies and the lifestyles of post-war America – but where are the ‘Negroes’ ? Where are the Chinese, Indians, dark-skinned Sicilians?
According to the vision of the United States Brewers Foundation Inc., those kinds of people don’t exist.
Still, the film is worth watching for what it shows, and what it doesn’t show.
