REASON'S FOR USING "Alberta's Pride" BEER I AT MEAL TIMES 1 "ALBERTA'S PRIDE BEER" is a concentrated liquid food. Tea and Coffee in no wise foods. In countries'where beer is used as a. table bever- age, dyspepsia is practically unknown. So is stomach trouble in general. In Germany beer is more frequent- ly drank than at meal time. Tho prejudice against strong stimulants has in no impaired the value ot "Alberta's Piide the most nutritious of all liquid foods. This beer is absolutely pure. This is no idle claim, but ou? liui we odii Lack up by proof. Come io our Brewery and we will show. you.
