Re: Who is going to the ABQuquerque CANvention?

Things are really looking good for the ABQ CANvention. The BCCA was guessing that ABQ would have low numbers like Portland, OR did but they are pleasantly surprised that ABQ is blowing the Portland numbers out of the water. (BTW - I had a blast in Portland!) The first block of rooms was sold out and...

There are 2 different of those 2-line Drewrys/905 Chicagos..... one had "Distributed" spelled out and the other just says "DIST". Took me forever to find both.

I have an extra of the "DIST" variation....

Those liquor boxes are the best. Walmart bags are OK for the short term but offer no protection.

Awesome digs. In the pic "10 cases of keepers" it's interesting to note the solo singles, like one Gold Medal, one Olympia, one silver Brown Derby OI, one Regal Select beer Only 1 OLY allowed in a photo.... if it was up to Scott Field, he would NOT allow any Olys to be taken home and certainly not ...

Re: California Vacation Digging II

We had a lot of fun searching and finding cans. Maybe a lot of guys would have left some of the stuff we dug, but we live in the dumper's hell of New Mexico & Texas where the next town over could be hours away, and where dumps are few and far between (not like back east where you can throw a rock an...

Thanks! It took 3 weeks to do all the cans. I went to Dale's yesterday to scrub the dirt off (the last of the cans) before soaking them. We had 6 buckets going last night. Came by this morning to pull them out of the acid, start the pyramid, then shoot the photos, then separate by brand, then do the...

This website has lost alot of it's fire in the past few years. I believe many of our hard-core members moved on to Facebook, and haven't looked back.

Re: December 1933 - Krueger "Canned Beer' for sale!

Fake news? It wasn't fake, it was a mistake. Herman assumed the date on the site was correct without verifying the date on the article/paper. Even if it was true, there'd be enough doubters to blow it up anyways... Kind of makes me want to NOT share information anymore - not worth the trouble and m...
