The Cumberland Brewing Co. opened their doors in 1890 in Cumberland, Maryland, and operated for 30 years before closing in 1920 with the advent of prohibition. Culmbacher Holiday Beer was a seasonal brew Cumberland produced for consumption in the fall and winter months when a heartier beer might seem warranted. Similar to most Münchener beers of the 1800s, Culmbacher (from the Bavarian Kulmbacher) was a dark lager, but it was much, much darker, and unlike most beers of the era, it was quite heavily hopped and a great deal stronger. Breweriana from Cumberland is very hard to come by and as such, this rare example is sourced from a rare surviving label with some offset printing deficiencies which make it extra cool. Whether you’re a fan of really obscure beers or just need a ‘holiday shirt’ to wear to a dumb holiday party that you don’t want to go to, this one is just for you!
Like all our designs, this one is treated with our signature ‘relic-ing’ process which includes our own secret recipe of hand-painted chipping, cracking, fading, and just the right touch of yellowing to ensure that it looks the part of a true vintage imprint.** We lay these works of art down on premium Bella+Canvas 3001 Unisex Jersey Short Sleeve Tees, one of the softest, best-wearing t-shirts available today, via state of the art direct to garment (DTG) printing which allows us to create a vintage effect that simply can’t be accomplished with other printing methods. In short, these shirts are everything you’ve dreamed of and more – it feels soft and lightweight with just the right amount of stretch making it comfortable and flattering for both men and women.

Not sure what size is your best fit? We recommend taking one of your current t-shirts, laying it flat and measuring it. The measurements in the chart below are taken with the shirt laying on a flat surface. To get the length, measure from the high shoulder point down to the bottom of the shirt. To get the width, measure approximately 1-inch below the armhole, across the chest, from seam to seam. While our tees are all made using premium, pre-shrunk, ring-spun cotton, there can be some shrinkage depending on your personal wash and dry cycles. With that said, if you’re on the fence, we always suggest going up a size.
