Rewritten 1940s beer advertisement

I rewrote a 1940s beer advertisement:

In this fun-loving land of ours, hops and malt are all about the good times spent with neighbors.  A small part of this great land of yours and mine is an ancient French city that was a province of the Spanish crown, that is governed by Napoleonic codes and the timeless law that the good times should be allowed to roll without interference.  In New Orleans, like everywhere in the U.S. of A, people get thirsty.  

America is a country of kindliness, of friendship, and of good-natured tolerance.  New Orleans sets the standard for all three qualities within its ample, broad bosom.  I’ve heard that an apple tree grew in the center of Jackson Square long before the Creoles arrived to plant their flags.  If there is sin in New Orleans, it is quicker than liquor and it is quickly forgiven.  Perhaps no beverages are more “at home” on more occasions than good American beer and ale, especially if it is drunk in New Orleans.

Beer and ale are the kinds of beverages Americans love.  Take a trip to New Orleans and discover how much beer a belly can bear if a beer belly can bear the strain.  It is easy to soak up the ambience in New Orleans, LA.  American-brewed beer and ale belong.  Especially DIxie.  Especially Jax.  Especially Abita.  Especially NOLA.  They are an important component of pleasant living and good fellowship when sipped with sensible moderation.  

It is every American’s right to enjoy beer and ale, a family-friendly, community-friendly beverage, especially in New Orleans, LA.  Our American heritage of personal freedom is shown to all the world in our per capita beer consumption statistics.  Nowhere is this more true than in New Orleans.  Nowhere else is the flag of freedom flown so high, wtih less worry or care, or with more friendly dispostion.

Be a New Orleanian, wherever you are.

If you are thinking of visiting New Orleans anytime soon.  We know of a nice historic bed and breakfast in the middle of Esplanade Avenue.  Close to the French Quarter and the usual destinations, and close to everywhere else.
