Beer belongs – enjoy it! America’s beverage of moderation (’40s & ’50s)

Beer belongs… enjoy it (1946)

In this home-loving land of ours… in this America of kindness, of friendship, of good-humored tolerance… perhaps no beverages are more “at home” on more occasions than good American beer and ale.

For beer is the kind of beverage Americans like. It belongs — to pleasant living, to good fellowship, to sensible moderation. And our right to enjoy it, this too belongs — to our own American heritage of personal freedom.
