ONE OF THE BIGGEST AND BEST BEER CAN AND BREWERIANA SHOWS ON THE EAST COAST! THIS YEAR'S SHOW WILL BE EVEN BIGGER AND BETTER THAN EVER!

The Brewery Collectibles Club of America (BCCA) is once again teaming up with the East Coast Breweriana Association (ECBA), BCCA Rusty Bunch and Crown Collectors Society International (CCSI) for our 2015 Spring Thaw Brewery Collectibles Show. After last year's record-breaking attendance, we will once again be meeting at the Park Inn by Radisson, at 5401 Carlisle Pike, Mechanicsburg, PA 17050. The hotel is only about five minutes from our old location at the Clarion Inn in New Cumberland, PA. Due to the exponential growth of the show, we now have a much larger trade floor, with enough space for 225 tables of beer cans and breweriana. Loading in and out for the room-to-room action is easier now too, with all guest rooms having outside access. So now, it's just a few easy steps from your car to your room. We will also have a bigger and better hospitality room. The Park Inn also has a very nice Sports Bar, restaurant, outdoor deck and live music on the weekends. There are also two swimming pools at the facility.

Whether you collect antique advertising, beer cans, tap knobs, crowns, chalk statues, vintage brewery items, neons, tin-over-cardboard signs, steins, mirrors, bottles, openers, labels, coasters, lithos, soda items, calendars, craft and micro beer collectibles, sports schedules or trays, you will find what you're looking for. Looking for that perfect item for your man-cave? You're bound to find it here. This is one of the biggest and best shows on the east coast, with up to 225 tables of brewery collectibles from dealers and collectors from across the country and Canada. Once again, our friends from CCSI will be joining us for their annual Crownvention. This is the best bottle cap/crown show on earth! We are happy to welcome the RUSTY BUNCH to our show this year!! This is a show you don't want to miss!
