      DESIGNER UNKNOWN ORVAL / BIÈRE AUTHENTIQUE. Circa 1931.
      20 3/4x15 1/2 inches, 52 3/4x39 1/2 cm.
      Condition A-: minor tears at edges; colors attenuated; ink stamps in lower left image. Paper.
      Belgium has a centuries-old tradition of beer brewing, largely undertaken by monks in their monasteries. Orval has been brewed since 1931. To be considered truly Trappist, beer must be brewed under the auspices of the Cistercian monastic community; there are only seven breweries in the world that can claim this title. Here, in a rare mix of New Realism and humor, a glass of foamy beer smiles and eagerly awaits the last drops of beer from a bottle. Litfass 90.
