Nice Cans!

Join Dan Scoglietti, aka Canmandan, and many others as the Roadrunner Chapter of the Brewery Collectibles Club of America hosts their annual swap meet this Saturday, May 21 from 10 am to 1 pm at La Cumbre Brewing Company. Dan has been collecting beer cans for over thirty years, and his staggering amount of memorabilia could make a seasoned hoarder swoon. Unlike a true hoarder, however, Dan's obsession is actually interesting. Do you have any brewery memorabilia you'd like to trade or show off? Cans aren't the only items of interest at the swap meet. Scoglietti invites people to bring "Any Breweriana... cans, bottles, openers, coasters,neon signs, tin signs and tackers, glasses, steins from pre-prohibition to microbrewery /craft brewery items". Ever find yourself looking at the wall of beer cans above Marble Brewery's bar and wondering about the history of a certain can? Most of those cans came from the very Roadrunner Chapter Brewery Collectibles Club that is putting on the swap meet, so come out Saturday and talk to one of the members. Each piece of memorabilia holds a piece of history, and the event is sure to be fun and educational.
