C. Fields RKO News & Comedy THE MOST POPULAR BEER IN HISTORY Inquiries about why enough Budweiser is not yet available have become so numerous that we ask our good friends everywhere in America to remember these facts: 2 1-FALL 30-MIHUTE MATCHES Bill Canny Red Roberts vs Buck Lawson Jack Moody Your demand has made Budweiser the most popular beer the world has over known-year after year after year. Official government figures prove it. Our production today is the greatest in the history o! brewing. Yet. Budweiser's high standard of quality is maintained at all limes. The constantly expanded Homo of Budweiser covering 70 city blocks in St. Louis is the world's largest brewery-as it was when beer returned in 1933. Each year, beginning in 1933. facilities to increase the production of Budweiser were added...until the war put an end to expansion in Ihe brewing industry. But. each succeeding year found your increased demand running iar ahead of our expanded facilities. Thus. Budweiser had to be rationed to dealers each year tor several years before wartime shortages introduced ANHEUSER - B U SC H rationing of many products to the country at large. In spite of the fact that grain quota* have been largely restored, Budweiser still is being rationed, because your demand still exceeds the production of our present vast facilities. So that you will find Budweiser again wherever you ask for it, our post-war expansion program will get under way just as soon as building skills and materials are available. Meanwhile, each day sees Budweiser arriving in communities everywhere to supply dealers equitably if not abundantly. When you ask for Budweiser and get it. you are enjoying the quality and the distinctive taste that have made it-sip by sip, drink by drink, bottle by bottle and barrel by barrel, year in and year out. the most popular beer in history.
