Saskatoon REASON'S FOR USING "Alberta's Pride" BEER AT MEAL TIMES ''ALBERTA'S PRIDE BEER" is a conccnlraled liquid food. Tea and Coffee arc in no wise i'oods. In countries where beer is used as 'a (able beverage, dyspepsia is practically hnknown. So is slomach trouble iii general. In Germany beer is more -frequently drank than water particularly at meal 'time. The prejudice against slimujanls lias in no wise impaired the value of "Alberta's Pride the most nutritious of all liquid foods. This hccr is absolutely pure. This is no kUc claim, but one that we can back up by proof. Come Brewery. and we will show you. To those' who value strong digestive organs we, advise "Alberta's Pride Beer" and we recommend il to convalescents because il is n tonic.
