Pour boire il faut vendre
Located in an old warehouse that used to store Black Horse products, the Pour boire il faut vendre exhibition is a must-see! More than 300 objects present various advertising strategies used by the brewers to boost sales of their famous beer.
The brand’s identity image, a magnificent black Percheron, was featured on an impressive collection of promotional items, from neon lights to calendars, from signs to print advertising. What’s more, by having their own stable and supporting the breeding of these powerful horses, the Dawes Brewery’s Black Horse gained unparalleled visibility.
