Saturday’s ad is for the Brauerei Feldschlösschen, from 1910. From the late 1800s until the 1970s, poster art really came into its own, and in Europe a lot of really cool posters, many of them for breweries, were produced. This poster was made for the Brauerei Feldschlösschen, in Rheinfelden, Switzerland, which was founded in 1876 as the Wüthrich & Roniger Brewery. In 1890, the company was reorganized and renamed Feldschlösschen. Apparently, the brewery is in the shape of a castle and Feldschlösschen means ‘small castle in the fields’ in German.” Today, the brewery is owned by the Carlsberg Group. It was created by Swiss painter Burkhard Mangold.

Originally a sculptor, Jen Garris, has been involved in San Francisco’s beer scene as long as anyone I know. She’s worked for Magnolia and New Belgium, as well as many others in the Bay Area. A few years ago she opened the Pi Bar in San Francisco, along with boyfriend Rich Rosen, who also co-owns Chenery Park. I absolutely love Pi’s white bacon pizza. More recently, they opened Bel, a Belgian-themed bar/restaurant on Mission St. in Bernal Heights. Today is Jen’s 29th or so birthday. Join me in wishing her a very happy birthday.
