This is not a typical question you might find in this forum. I am a long time (25 years) collector and historian interested in beer cans and other brewery advertising items. During remodeling or renovation projects of houses, warehouses, churches, etc., beer/brewery items such as beer cans, beer bottles, bottle caps, signs, serving trays, bottle openers, etc. have been found. I am always interested in acquiring more items, especially old beer cans that used a "church key" (can opener) to open them or the cone top cans with a bottle cap on them (these look like old brake fluid cans). The beer can first was available for sale to the public in 1935 (Richmond, Virginia) so cans may be found in 1930s-present vintage buildings or from older renovation projects. I would be very interested in purchasing these types of items from those people that might happen to find these things during your remodeling project. Feel free to contact me at any time, even if it's just to "talk beer" or brewery history. I am not an antique dealer looking to sell these items, just a collector who truly appreciates this part of American history. Many of these old labels are true works of art. I'll look forward to hearing from you!
