Monday’s ad is for Heineken Beer, from around the 1950s, maybe a little later. 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 one was created for Heineken, which was founded as De Hooiberg in 1592 in Amsterdam, in The Netherlands. The Heineken family bought the brewery and renamed it in 1864. I don’t know who created this poster, but the text below Heineken’s Bier, “‘het meest getapt!,” which translates as “the most tapped!” Google went with “mostly tapped,” but happily a Dutch friend corrected that.
