New Discovery Revolutionizes the
CINCINNATI. O., June 27. By a nrw
method of concentration a well-known
brewer of this city has discovered a
process whereby real beer in concen
trated form can now be furnished.
Anyone can now have in their own
home a glass of beer whenever wanted
at a cost of only 1 cent a glass. He
furnishes the barley malt, hops and
other necessary ingredients of beer in
the concentrated form so that simply
by the addition of water and a little
sugar a sparkling, foaming glass of
lager beer can be quickly prepared.
It i said that this beer is far superior
to the regular brewery beer, and as a
result of this discovery thousands of
people all over the country are already
making their own beer at home. This
new discovery will be welcomed by
thousands of people living in dry ter
ritory, as on account of its concen
tration it can be delivered quickly anil
cheaply anywhere by parcel post. No
one. whether in field, factory, farm or
home, needs now to be without their
daily glass of refreshing lager beer.
