AUTHORIZED Sales Service PHONE 162 Home Appliance Co. 20 Socond St. N. E. CORRECTION: Let's set the record straight, there is more than one naturally carbonated beer- and has been for TOO years. 'Recently, the brewers of a nationally famous beer stated that theirs was the only beer in America with all natural carbonation all the time. Such is not the case. We have been 'brewing Heileman's Old Style Lager up in La Crosse, Wisconsin, for more than 100 years. AH of our beer goes through a second fermentation --is carbonated slowly and naturally --just like fine champagne (and we have used this phrase in our advertising for years). And, to make the point more clearly, our beer ; always has been carbonated naturally--all of it! This is nothing new with us. Further, Heileman's Old Style Lager is age.d longer, far longer than any other premium beer. This all-but-lost art of slow, natural aging is why Heileman's Old Style has such a superb flavor. People have found a way to make beer faster, but never a way to make beer better. That's why there has never been too much Heileman's Old Style -and why what there has been is treasured so highly.
