‘Guinness Is Good For You!’ Advert From 1930

Posted on January 26th, 2013 by The British Newspaper Archive

We very much liked the professional medical advice offered in this advert from 1930 – we’re sure that many over-worked businessmen will be thrilled by this free medical advice.

Next time we’re at the doctor’s, we’ll be asking the doc to write out a prescription for this magical, cure-all stuff.

A lot of racehorses still get Guinness (or similar beers) as a tonic. Seriously. It’s considered an excellent source of B-vitamins for them. Plus, they love it.

This ad was actually pretty accurate.

Oh we didn’t know that – thanks for posting this. Now I know why mm Dad used to make us Guinness Cakes when we were younger!
