This weekend I went up into my parents attic and retrieved my brothers beer can collection. He asked that I send these too him in Georgia. As I was looking through the collection my father noticed that back in the 70’s beer was still being sold in tin cans. It was interesting to look at the different labels and I wondered what happened to my collection.
I remember my neighbor Ron, my brother John and I scrounging around the high school looking for the cans from the prior teenage party. I must admit that we had a good time doing it. I think that beer can collecting has faded into the past since I never hear much about it anymore.
A friend of mine said I should have a party with all of the beer cans on display, so next month I will be having a small party where we will sit around, swill good beer and reminisce about the “Good ol’ days”. After that the beer can collection will be put back in the box, taken to UPS and sent to my brother. His kids will get a kick at looking at the cans and I am sure it will bring memories back for John.
