Wednesday’s ad is for Meistertrunk, 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 Kronenbrauerei, or Kronen Privatbrauerei Dortmund, which is located in Dortmund, Germany. It “was one of the oldest breweries in Westphalia and has its headquarters at the Old Market in Dortmund. The company was able to look back on more than 550 years of brewing tradition and was family-owned from 1729 until 1996.” It was acquired by Dortmunder Actien Brauerei in 1996, and today is part of the Radeberger Group. The poster was created by German artist and architect Siegmund Suchodolski.
