This is one habit I have just never fell into:
John Ahrens recalls when he was sucked into beer-can collecting. The 63-year-old suburban Philadelphia man, who was among the more than 800 people attending the 36th annual convention of the Brewery Collectibles Club of America, was a student at Yale University when his classmates began lining a ledge with cans. The CANvention started Wednesday and goes through Saturday. By graduation, Ahrens had 250 cans, and he kept adding to them. The collection eventually grew to include about 30,000 cans...Here is the story on the convention of the 36th annual convention of the Brewery Collectibles Club of America held in Kansas City this week where I learned about John of the 30,000 cans. And if you are going to be any "...Club of American" you had better have a website with a decent history, in this case of showing how the BCCA formed around 1970. Once in the club, you can buy stuff at eBay or even at places like this. The you can even entertain thoughts of joining the splinter schismists of the ABA or the ECBA. No sign of a CBA yet.
