Thursday’s ad is for Gueuze Merlo, from after 1940. 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 Merlink, which was “formed after a merger of Merlo and Linkebeek breweries in 1940. Merlo was founded in Uccle as “Brasserie L. Vandenperre” in 1892. I’m not sure who created this metal sign.
