Another interesting button from the Miller Brewing Company.  This unusual, 2 1/8 in. square pin-back features a Universal Studios licensed image of the Wolf Man for their Sharp's Non-Alcoholic Beer.





Evidently their "Don't Let It Get Ugly, Ask For Sharp's Tonight! - Keep Your Edge" slogan is a caution not to let the beast in you take control on Halloween.

Can't find a year on this one or if any other Universal Monsters were featured in this campaign.

Anyone out there know more about this one?

I doubt this Universal Monsters glass was actually free.  But the familiarly designed plastic 16 oz. glass deserves to be here with all the similar ones already posted.  It probably sold for a very small additional amount over the cost of the drink.

No idea where these were utilized.  Never seen them before.







UNIVERSAL MONSTERS - Cup - Plastic - 16 oz. - Ribbed sides - Makes for nice light pattern.
