Beer In Ads #3290: La Maxèville

Sunday’s ad is for Bière Maxèville, from around 1890 or so. 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 created for the Grandes Brasserie Reunies de Maxèville, which was located in Maxèville, France. It was founded in 1869, and began using the Grandes Brasserie name in 1877, after it was bought by a group of investors. In 1942, it closed due to the Second World War, and in 1947 the owners decided against re-opening. I don’t know who created this second poster that features an idealized illustration of the brewery.
