The New Gem Beer

May 1, 1953 Wisconsin Rapids Daily Tribune
We haven't featured a Gem beer ad for quite awhile now.  Hopefully, this beer fared better than New Coke did in 1985.  Many factors, I'm sure, figured into the closing of the brewery three years later but this reworking of the formula wasn't the savior the company might have hoped it'd be.

  1. Thanks for bringing up the ad. I remember Gem Beer being served at an uncles' house when we were visiting Menasha in 1954.
    You keep this site interesting. You and the Historical Society need to put out another book on Menasha!!!!
