This original French poster advertises a beer from the Heineken-owned French brewery called Pelforth. Pelforth is a French brewery founded in 1914 in Mons-en-Barœul by three Lillois brewers. It was originally called Pelican, after a popular dance at the time, but changed its name to Pelforth after World War II. The name is a mash up of Pelican and "forte", which means strong – and this is the style of beer they brew, including a blonde, brune and amber. 

Poster is unlined and in excellent condition - ready to frame!
