Beer In Ads #3269: Bière Croix De Lorraine

Monday’s ad is for Croix De Lorraine, from the early 20th century. 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 La Croix De Lorraine, a brewery in Bar-le-Duc, a commune in the Meuse area of France, located in the northeast. The brewery is named for the Cross of Lorraine, a particular type of cross common to the area. I don’t know who the artist is that created the poster, although in the lefthand corner it appears to be signed “G. Elisabeth.”
