Actually there was a group of Hamms distributors that had bought the brewery during the 70's before it was sold to Olympia. My Dad was one of those owners.

Other Hamms Breweries[edit]

There was also a Hamm's in San Francisco. If Hamm's had other plants, perhaps that should be mentioned. After the brewery in SF closed, it was used as studios for bands - something memorable to many San Franciscans.Cleshne (talk) 06:59, 14 August 2010 (UTC)

Hamm's is still brewed (the 6 pack in my fridge were made in Milwaukee, WI). Saying "Hamm's is the name of a former American brewery in Saint Paul, Minnesota" seems to imply that the beer isn't made any more. Should that be clarified or is it out-of-scope if this entry is related to Minnesota topics?


not sure where Cleshne got the information but there were not that many vats - perhaps 64 at most so no 200 bands, lived there myself so I knowNstream28 (talk) 18:15, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, I fixed that. Cleshne (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 16:36, 26 January 2013 (UTC)

re: Jingle[edit]

I recall that, for awhile in the early 1960s, Hamms' TV commercials had a theme song that was set to the "Totem Tom-Tom" music that Rudolph Friml had composed for Rose-Marie in the 1920s. WHPratt (talk) 15:18, 31 October 2014 (UTC)


The history section is rife with spelling and grammatical errors.50.141.97.80 (talk) 22:04, 7 September 2015 (UTC)

Start and end dates of bear ads[edit]

...particularly the animated cartoons, are not mentioned. When did they first appear on TV, and when did they disappear? Jeh (talk) 03:46, 12 October 2016 (UTC)
