1930s health drink: vitamin D beer

Healthy beer? Who'd a thunk it? Back in 1936, Milwaukee's Joseph Schlitz Brewing Co. began marketing a new product designed to boost the health of those who drank it: Sunshine Vitamin D.

Did this concoction do its drinkers any good? No one knows, but it apparently wasn't very profitable. The company quit making it in 1938.

Maybe Walt Kupfer would have become just as easily addicted to this as the light visor.
