Friday’s ad is for “Brasserie du Cardinal,” from 1960. From the late 1800s until the 1960s, poster art really came into its own, and in Europe a lot of really cool posters, many of them for breweries, were produced. This poster was made for Brasserie du Cardinal, in Fribourg, Switzerland, which was founded in 1788 by François Piller. In 1991 (though one source says 1996), it was acquired by Feldschlösschen, which is owned by the Carlsberg Group. I believe this poster may have been created by Swiss artist Pierre-Alexandre Junod, but I’m not 100% sure.
