World’s Fair Wednesday – Beer!

Being part of “The World”, beer naturally has a place at World’s Fairs.  In 1982, a Knoxville World’s Fair Beer was released in six different colored cans.  You could collect them all, or apparently you could sample one and decide that it wasn’t worth the effort – the beer was by most accounts pretty awful.  Still, cool cans:

This picture comes from a page with a pretty great account of a trip to the 1982 Fair.

Schaefer Beer set up a huge restaurant/bar at the 1939 World’s Fair in New York.  This promotional video  was created a year after the fact, but the end of it focuses on the World’s Fair installation.  That’s a long bar!

 

 


Drink up!
