MINNESOTA MUSIC BLOG

 

While hanging out with my TravBuddy posse, I mentioned that one of my most memorable Minnesota music moments came when I lived in Duluth as a boy. My favorite baseball team was the Minnesota Twins. Every televised game, you would see a series of animated commercials starring the hapless Hamm's Beer bear and his woodland friends.

 

The Hamm's Beer became so well-known and identified with Minnesota that the St. Paul Pioneer Press named the bear as a runner-up on its list of "150 Influential Minnesotans of the Past 150 Years" in 2000.

 

CHECK OUT AN ORIGINAL HAMM’S BEAR JINGLE

(First Verse)

From the land of sky blue waters (waters),
From the land of pines, lofty balsams,
Comes the beer refreshing,
Hamm's, the beer refreshing.

Julie, as I told you, I grew up with three TV heroes - Jethro Bodine (The Beverly Hillbillies), Arnold the pig (Green Acres) and the Hamm's Bear. Now you know why I turned out this way :-D
