I noticed this picture in a collection of 1930s and 40s colour photos from the US Library of Congress collection published by the UK's Daily Mail. Click for a bigger version. The caption is "Part of the South Water Street freight depot of the Illinois Central Railroad in Chicago, Illinois, May 1943" but all I want to know is this - why does that PBR ad say "Blended 33 to 1"?
Have you read The Unbearable Nonsense of Craft Beer - A Rant in Nine Acts by Alan and Max yet? It's out on Kindle as well as Lulu.
Maureen Ogle said this about the book: "... immensely readable, sometimes slightly surreal rumination on beer in general and craft beer in particular. Funny, witty, but most important: Smart. The beer geeks will likely get all cranky about it, but Alan and Max are the masters of cranky..."
Ron Pattinson said: "I'm in a rather odd situation. Because I appear in the book. A fictional version of me. It's a weird feeling."
