    Here are some old ads that some of you might remember, or not. Most of them would be considered inappropriate, by today's standards.

    @Ken Anderson My Mother remarked now and then when the subject of beer came up that when she was pregnant with me, our old family doctor advised her to drink a bottle of beer daily, preferably Bock beer. 'Course, I never once saw her drink a beer AFTER I was born, so........

    Beer was prescribed to pregnant women for years and didn't seem to affect anyone adversely, especially Guinness, as low-alcohol, high nutrition concoction. I think La Leche League still tells women to have a beer while nursing, especially if they are having difficulty producing adequate milk. It relaxes anxious mothers and seems to increase milk production. I don't think doctors every recommend it any more, as too many people think, "If one beer is good, six will be better."
