Anheuser Busch came to that conclusion, their name did not appear on any cars in the immediate post-prohibition period, eventually even changing their beer bottle green color on the St' Louis Refrigerator line cars. But it seems like everyone else, except maybe Coors, big and small, tried to plaster their names on as many cars as possible during the 1934-1937 period, when the ICC rules went into effect. Miller even put their logo on some cars in the 60s when the interpretation was relaxed.

Beer didn't need icing, so beer cars were usually ARA
class RB, Refrigerator, Bunkerless. Eventually the brewers
came to the realization that putting their logo on the car
was akin to posting a COME STEAL ME sign.
