7 1/4" x 10 1/2" ad done in brownish-red text and white background with a childish drawing of a battleship and the words "You may serve the Schlitz when ready, Gridley!". The text explains that when Admiral Dewey attacked Manilla it took seven hours of bombardment to acquire a surrender. This was hard work and the men were very thirsty so the Jos. Schlitz Brewing Co, promptly sent a shipload of their product as a token of their appreciation. I would have to assume that they were very thirsty by the time the ship arrived.

Schlitz 110

Full color 8" x 10 3/4" ad for the beer that is popular around the world. Most of the ad is taken up with a picture of the Earth against a dark background but there is an inset picture of a man on a sailing ship holding a can of Schlitz to his mouth while the other men in the back of the picture watch him with envy. The ad encourages you to "Taste the Gusto life".
