Thursday’s ad is for the Brauerei von Andres Raum, from 1885. 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 Andres Raum Brauerei, which was located in Erfurt, which is in central Germany. While some sources claim the poster is from 1885, it seems more likely that 1885 is when the brewery was founded, although it was originally known as Actienbrauerei Erfurt, and later the Brauerei Schlegelsche, with Raum buying the brewery around 1924. It appears he was forced to close at the beginning of the Second World War, which places this poster at sometime between 1924 and 1939. The poster is a beautiful illustration of a bottle of beer with the brewery in the background, along with lots of little flourishes of hop plants framing it. It is unknown who exactly the artist was that created it, but his initials were A.M.
