Re: BCCA USBC Supplement Phone App and "My Collection" volunteers wanted

Having both is extremely useful. It is great to have your entire collection viewable from your phone at a beer show to look for variations upgrades.

Re: Status of USBC Supplemental Updates.......An incredible effort

It is amazing how time consuming it is to add new photos.

The union can and the Zulia on the right of the two were on the cover of the ??1998 roster. They were later found in a plane crash in the high Andes per my sources. ( a number of cases- 60 dollars is excellent)

@foreigncanman is the KVAS a FT? Rare?
It is a tab made by Isenbeck and not really a beer from what I understand. There is some debate about this .Maybe 100-200 in value. Tom
