Welcome to the online home of the Rusty Bunch! Founded in 1984, we are the 108th Chapter of the Brewery Collectibles Club of America (BCCA).
This organization is the legacy of our late friend and founder Warren Hardaker, a devout collector of antique beer cans with a passion for locating them in abandoned dumpsites. Dump-digging for rare old beer cans was, in fact, the very essence of the Rusty Bunch at its conception. It was built around fun, friendships, the thrill of a great discovery, and a decidedly unique approach to the beer can collecting craze of that era!
The group obviously condemns any trespassing in an effort to dump cans and all will be made aware of the original dumping ethics present by the current president back in 2013:
- Respect the rights and properties of others.
- Observe all laws, national, state, and local.
- Leave land and vegetation as it was, and fill in all your holes.
- Remove trash and litter.
- Conduct yourself with courtesy and consideration for others – including respecting the collectors who have introduced you to specific dumps.
- Just have fun.
