That is a really cool sign DB. Might be a good jump off for a thread of pics of the beer stuff people have collected. Lord knows I have my share...desertBrew said:Me and my buddies were styling. We used to get kegs of Andeker.
(saw this on ebay; pretty cool actually)

Good idea Ize; I think you ought to start that thread. I don't have squat for beer memorabilia but would like to see others "stuff". Had that beer can collection as a kid but that's gone now.
Amazing. . .sause said:Yes they do!
LOL...my Dad has a sixer and a couple of the cans are unopened but empty now...just evaporated!Biermann said:I have an unopened six pack of Billy Beer at home, complete with two vintage Billy Beer mugs. . . I should post a pic later.
My sixer is still in the plastic rings, and each can is hefty-full of fluid (I'm not sure its really still "beer" after 30 yearsBaron von BeeGee said:LOL...my Dad has a sixer and a couple of the cans are unopened but empty now...just evaporated!

That's what my dad told me. He's the one that kept the sixer of it. He said he bought 2 six packs when it came out, he and a friend drank one, and couldn't bring themselves to drink the other.2nd Street Brewery said:I had some back then, It wasn't beer 30 yrs ago either.

Are you piloting the Deathstar? Did they ever get that thing fuly operational?Rhoobarb said:Wow - interesting seeing everyone's pics!
Okay, here's one of me partaking in an offshoot of my other hobby. If it's any consolation, my g/f and I wondered into a local bar with a great beer selection about an hour after she took this:
I saw a couple of the original cans of billy brew that were PBR cans with B.B. on one of the ends of the blue ribbon and INC. on the other. Pretty cool. The guy who's house I was at has a whole wall of beer cans, all different. So he's been collecting for a long time.Biermann said:I have an unopened six pack of Billy Beer at home, complete with two vintage Billy Beer mugs. . . I should post a pic later.
Made in 1976--I'm pretty sure that stuff would be pretty skunked out if you drank it.
That's awesome, SWMBO and I occasionally sail on her friends' boat (Catalina 30', or now a Macgregor 26') in the Chesapeak. We talk about packing it all in and moving to the Caribbean on a sailboat-seems like that would be the life.dantodd said:On our way from Newport to San Francisco (SWMBO and our son Cameron only went as far as Santa Barbara)
That's actually a silver spear. You can't see it in that picture, but Bill had just slain a vampire when that was taken.Sir Sudster said:Is that a metal detector you've got in your hands or are you just cleaning up?
Actually is a monopod for my camera. I don't have it anymore. When I'm hiking a lot I use 2 telescoping ski poles.Sir Sudster said:Is that a metal detector you've got in your hands or are you just cleaning up?
Never thought of the NC/TN border as "exotic", but I'll give that one to you for free.Baron von BeeGee said:Me in a previous life at the NC/Tennessee border (since Bill is posting exotic locations and dantodd boats, I figured to follow suit...)
