Esslinger’s Bock Patents Pending

#1

Post by DURTBAGG » Mon Nov 04, 2019 9:23 pm

Here is my can of the show from this past weekends Sandhills can/Breweriana show hosted by Jim Romine and the Hugger Mugger brewery in Sanford NC. The ultra tough large “Keglined”, Patents Pending Esslinger’s Bock OI!!

According to the OI book/supplement, my example brings the total known of this variation to a whopping 3!! Of course, I’m sure there are others out there as well, but no doubt it is significantly tougher than the standard small “Keglined” Others Pending variation. Could very well be the toughest OI to grace my shelves!

Oh sure you say that now.. But who Rand? Who would you kill for that can?

Sorry, Halloween humor kinda lingers around here.... Incredible can DB Did you know right away what it was?
And thanks for the compliment on the postcard the Halloween ones can be really cool. Andy
If you have Schmidt scenic cans: white back, 12oz drafts, and most gold ones in either flat or zip I'd love to talk. Also interested in irtp and older Gluek labels.

Thanks Andy
I only knew right away that it was an Esslinger Bock with a price tag that fell very nicely into my budget! Didn’t even go there with the intent of picking up anything as I’m still in “liquidation mode” on a lot of stuff. Couldn’t believe when I saw it, and the fact that apparently “a lot of guys had already looked at it” according to the gentleman that had it. Only noticed it was the Patents Pending version about 3 hours later, when I was showing it to someone at the show!!

I come a hair of buying that can and that’s not even in my wheelhouse. Great score!
Interested in all flat and Cone Soda and Water cans.

I guess that’s one good thing about not really having a “wheelhouse” of stuff I collect.

Just looking for cool labels I like! They don’t get much cooler or rarer than this!! I only came home with 3 new cans and already had one of those. Was hoping for a minor variation or at least an upgrade, but struck out in both regards there

Wow! Glad Rand is out of the OI game-I don’t feel like moving and going off the grid to protect myself from a deranged OI specialist!! LOL. :lol: :lol:

:-) Rand, Lol- well played sir.

Steve, I think deranged OI specialist might be a little redundant.... I'm pretty sure our OldTexanZiptopperofthePullTopolis is deranged too... Andy
