Beer In Ads #3198: Oktoberfest 2016

Thursday’s ad is for the Munich Oktoberfest, from 2016. 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 is for the Munich Oktoberfest, which began September 21 and runs through October 6. Originally I thought from now until then I’d post posters from the German folk festival, but now that Oktoberfest is over I think I’ll just keep going. From what I can tell, official Oktoberfest posters started being produced each year beginning in 1952. This poster was created by German artists Susanna Schneider and Linda Sophia Schultheis.
