Grand Prize Beer — ca. 1930s

I’m from Texas, but I have to admit that I’ve never heard of this beer. According to this site, it was VERY popular at one time and was brewed at the Gulf Brewing Company in Houston, a company owned by Howard Hughes. Who knew? Better still is this great song by Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown that is basically a song-length jingle for “Texas’ Largest Seller.”
