Wednesday’s ad is for the Brauerei zum Warteck, from 1900. 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 Warteck, located in Basel, Switzerland. It was founded in 1856, although that’s the year that founder Niklaus Emanuel Merian-Seeber started his restaurant, and added a brewery six years later, in 1862. In 1988, Warteck was bought by the Brauerei Feldschlösschen, who in turn today is owned by the Carlsberg Group. I also don’t know who the artist was who created this poster.
