Joe Offer Meaning and origin of Hamm's Beer Bear (31) RE: Meaning and origin of Hamm's Bear 10 Dec 20

I reached the age of 18 when I was a freshman in college in 1966, which meant I could drink beer in some counties in Wisconsin. I was in school in Milwaukee, and we would drive two counties south to eat pizza and drink beer and play drinking games at Shakey's Pizza on Interstate 94 outside Kenosha....and then drive two counties back after drinking pitchers of beer.

While Wisconsin was well-known for its own beer, it seemed the most popular brand was Hamm's, which came from Minnesota. I remember getting a "shorty" (7 ounces, I think) of draft Hamm's for 15 cents.

Those were the days.

From the Land of Sky Blue Waters, capturing the frosty enchantment...
