Saturday’s ad is for Heineken, from the 1940s. 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. The text at the bottom, “Let meest getapt!,” Google translates as “please most tapped,” which I suspect is something like “the most popular tapped beer.” I’m not sure who created this poster.
