Description Color offset lithograph on white semi-glossy paper. Printing proof of an advertisement for the United States Brewers Foundation featuring an illustration by John Falter. The three-quarter page illustration depicts a group of adults--male and female--sitting and standing around a picnic table with blue canvas director chairs awaiting dinner. The people waiting are drinking beer. Walking from the right are two women with plates of shrimp and lobster. In the background are mossy trees, a red brick house on the right, and in the distance, water with sail boats moving along the placid water. The sun has set. Beneath the illustration is ad copy featuring the line: "In this friendly, freedom-loving land of ours... Beer Belongs--Enjoy It!". Printed on the bottom middle edge is a schedule of ad placement in five magazines. A name is written in graphite on the top left corner.
