Beer In Ads #38: Gangloff

This Friday is also the three-year anniversary of The Sessions, a.k.a. Beer Blogging Friday. When I created the logo for the Session, I used this Gangloff beer ad from 1930. I chose it for its simplicity and clean lines. I think it’s worked well, and so it made the obvious choice for today’s ad.


As far as I can tell, Brasserie Gangloff was an Alsatian brewery that closed in 1970. The only photo I could find of it was after it was bombed on July 16, 1943 during World War II.

    Looks just like the wine and liquor posters produced at that time as well.

    As for bombing a brewery, just more proof that war is indeed hell.

    I am a Gangloff and really enjoyed the history. I have been searching for the print you have listed here for quite awhile now. Any info appreciated.
