Historical Beer Share Emerges at Hungarian Beer Trophy Collecting Club
17 April 2013
Beer related postcards from before the 2nd World War, a historical Dreher share and a few international novelties were the main interests for exhibitors and visitors at the Hungarian Beer Trophy Collecting Club's recent meeting.
Exhibitors from Hungary, Austria, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Poland and Serbia were present at the Hungarian Beer Trophy Collecting Club's meeting and the 82 exhibitors presented many beer-related paraphernalia and rare items in connection with beer culture.
Visitors could admire unique, often artistic beer labels, caps, cans and beermats in the Dreher Breweries' building. Collectors were most impressed this time by a historical Dreher share, but beer-related postcards from before the 2nd World War were also much sought after. Naturally, many other beer-related items could be found at the exhibit, such as bottle openers, old beer bottles, pottery mugs, calendar cards, key holders and the newest international novelties. The beverage itself was also on show at the event as several collectors brought their own artisanal brews.
“We will meet again in Dreher Breweries' huge room in November but members of our Club are already getting prepared for the World Meeting. The first Beer Trophy World Meeting will be organised this year on October 3rd in Slovakia. So far 27 countries confirmed their participation. Thanks to Dreher Breweries' support, the Hungarian collectors’ scene is getting more and more active, which is why the Hungarian Beer Trophy Collecting Club is so excited about the World Meeting,” emphasised András Kovács, president of the Hungarian Beer Trophy Collecting Club at the end of the recent event.
