‘Guinness Is Good For You!’ Advert From 1930

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.
