IMG_8675 IMG_8705 IMG_8707Vintage beer artifact collecting is, perhaps, one of the most democratic hobbies. It’s quite possible to start your collection of classic beer cans for as little as $1. If you’re among the super rich, then you’re probably attracted to items that fetch $10,000, $20,000 or even $30,000. Here are some shots from the recent convention of the Brewery Collectibles Club of America in Milwaukee, showcasing packaging and point-of-sale items from days gone by.

About Jeff Cioletti

I’m Jeff Cioletti and The Drinkable Globe marries my two greatest passions: fine drink and travel. The search for the former usually drives the latter. I'm the author of The Year of Drinking Adventurously. When I’m not traveling and drinking— aww, hell, who am I kidding, even when I am—I'm editor-at-large of Beverage World magazine and its companion site, beverageworld.com. I’ve been at Beverage World since January 2003. I’ve been interviewed on beverage-related topics for CNN, Fox Business News, CNBC, Beer Sessions Radio, Canada's ROB TV, NPR, BBC World, BBC Radio, The Associated Press, The New York Post, Financial Times, Investors Business Daily, Advertising Age, WCBS-TV and several other media outlets. Beyond the journalism gig, I’m also a filmmaker; I wrote, produced and co-directed the feature film, “Beerituality,” a comedy set in the world of craft beer. The film is available on at http://www.storenvy.com/products/510365-beerituality-dvd and can be streamed and downloaded at amazon.com
