Tuesday’s ad is for Salmenbräu Rheinfelden, from 1930. 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 last year, and will continue to do so in 2020. This poster was for Salmenbräu which was located in Rheinfelden, Switzerland. “It was founded in 1799 and was independent for almost two centuries until it became part of the Sibra Holding (later Cardinal) in 1971. The production facilities remained in operation until 2002, from 1991 most recently under the umbrella of the Feldschlösschen group, which also comes from Rheinfelden.” The artist who created the poster was Swiss illustrator Martin Peikert.
