There's a new RARE CANS forum here that should be utilized for this, the Triangle Thread and also some of the "lost cans" threads.
http://www.therustybunch.com/phpBB3/viewforum.php?f=272" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

It would go a long way to keeping track of this stuff once a conversation with solid intel begins.

Hey Dave,

I can help locate one of the below listed cans.....or at least shed a bit of light on it.

I wrote an article in the Rustlings last year (it pays to be a member) about my find of the Lilek #565. Big thanks for the help from Rand on this one when I found them.

Here is a thread about it also.

The Brown Derby really floats my boat, and thanks to Gene I got to fondle it a couple years ago. I saw the Lubeck at Dave Stark's house before the OI book was out, and it floored me.

Congratulations - are all three new acquisitions?

I knew Gene had the two, but I wasn't sure about the Salute. That's quite a power trio, but the Neuweiler's Bock tops them all in my book, even with two real nice ones out there. Gene had both of them at one point. I don't know whether he kept the mug or the salesman's sample can. I've got a big goat coming too, maybe next weekend.

I'm not sure Dave is still maintaining the list. It got little response back in 2016, and I haven't seen him post recently. Several cans didn’t belong on the list because the original source information was incorrect, and several more no longer belong because cans have turned up.

I heard about the find of the Yorkshire Ales, but I never heard much in the way of a story. I think I heard garage sale? I'd love to hear the details and see photos of the cans.

Dave hasn't been in here in 2 years & pops in about once every 3 years on & off. Hard to keep track of a list you started at that rate :smt017

He didn't get much of a response either. Tracking all of the stuff that moved into, then back out of, Indiana would have been a fool's errand anyhow, not that anyone could have known that at the time.
