Friday’s ad is for Tuborg, from 1993. From the late 1800s until the 1980s, poster art really came into its own, and in Europe a lot of really cool posters, many of them for breweries, were produced. I’ve been posting vintage European posters all year, and for the remainder of December will feature holiday-themed posters of all ages. “Tuborg is a Danish brewing company founded in 1873 on a harbour in Hellerup, an area North of Copenhagen, Denmark. Since 1970 it has been part of the Carlsberg Group.” This was created by Wibroe & Partners (now Wibroe, Duckert & Partners) and shows an illustration of an idealized Tuborg brewhouse. The text of the poster reads “På Tuborg har vi sat et par kedler Classic mere over” which translates as “At Tuborg we have put a couple of boilers Classic over,” though I feel confident that’s close, but not quite right.
