ABOUT ME / MY COLLECTION
Back in 1995, I started working for the Stroh Brewing Co. at their Fogelsville, PA brewery that was located just outside Allentown. I started dating this lovely woman (now my lovely wife) who's parents were really into antiques and going to auctions. One of the auctions I attended had beer trays for sale. The very first beer tray I bought was that night and it was a very clean Schmidt's beer tray that I paid $6.00 for. I remember thinking how cool they were and I had to know more about beer stuff. I found Haydock's first book at the book store. In their book I saw a beer tray that was from the B. Schade Brewing Co. in Spokane, WA. I couldn't believe it! I had to have that tray! That's how the addiction started. I no longer have that Schmidt's tray that started it all, but I do have that B. Schade tray I coveted.
I sold off my wonderful collection over 12 years ago and pretty much got out of the business moving across the country with my job and spending time with the family. I recently got back into it and started collecting again in the spring of 2011. I now live outside Indianapolis with my wife and five daughters. Below are some of the items I have in my collection since I started this whole process over. Take a look and enjoy!
In addition to myself, there is one major consigner, contributor to Vintage Beer Collectibles that I would like to mention. Their names are Lester Jones Jr. and Sr. They are not only close friends, but they sell a lot of items through the site which has been much appreciated. They have also been providing VBC with a variety of great breweriana collectibles to sell. In addition, they help provide expertise for breweriana from east coast states like PA/DE/NY/NJ/MD.
