Conversation has ground to a halt?
Pose this question: What beer did your father drink when you were a kid?

“We'll be having beer this year.”
At least that's what this 1948 ad seems to suggest. All you need is some neighbors coming home with groceries. “Greetings, fellow hat wearer. I've never tasted mass produced lager before. May I come in your house and drink beer while your attractive young wife sizes up my real intentions?”

So what exactly is the point of this post? To show you a picture of a Knickerbocker.
That athletes thought about sex?
A serving suggestion.
Unless, of course, you just keep pounding them down.
You're supposed to strap the 264-ounce bottle of beer to your back.
No, despite the name, this was not a Spokane product.
