This day in age, buying postcards feels pretty antiquated. Cell phones and social media have collapsed time. Want to let someone know you’re having fun on vacation? Just snap a photo and put it on Facebook or Instagram. Decades ago old drinking postcards filled this need quite nicely. All you had to do was find a card that told your story or a joke with a picture, jot down a few sentences on the back, and slap a one cent stamp in the corner. Beer, brewing, and drinking follies were a popular subject matter, but political statements could also be made.
