Thread Name: beer commercials/jingles
Subject: RE: beer commercials/jingles
Chicago's Edelweiss beer had a jingle to a piece of classical music that Stephen Barr partly remembered above, but there was more to it. I haven't heard it in more than the sixty years since I left the Chicao area (Elmhurst, actually), but when my wife and I went into a movie theater the other day, the classical music was playing and most the words came instantly to mind:
Drink Edelweiss, it tastes so nice,
It tastes so nice, drink Edelweiss.
To quench your thirst, remember first,
Drink good old Edelweiss

The second "It tastes so nice" may have been another phrase, but it escapes me
