Wednesday’s ad is for a Brasserie Gruber & Cie, from 1898. 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 Brasserie Gruber & Cie of Melun, which “is a French commune located in Seine-et-Marne in the region Île-de-France.” It was founded in 1888 and continued until 1943. After World War II, it continued to brew beer under a variety of trade names, before closing for good in 1985. The name of the artist is on the poster in the bottom right hand corner, but I can’t quite make it out. It looks sort of like Finney Eomissel, but I know that’s not right.
