Beer In Ads #1138: Eckert & Winter’s Bock

Saturday’s ad is for Eckert & Winter’s Bock, from 1877.The brewery only lasted for twelve years, from 1868 to 1880. Afterwards, it became the George Winter Brewery/Brewing Co. The poster was created by a B. Flemm out of Baltimore. It shows a crowned figure (King Gambrinus?) astride five goats, holding up a mug of Bock beer. He’s riding out from two very large brewery buildings in the background. WHat an awesome sight!
