Blue Gray Breweriana Show Arrives In Herndon

All the drinking can only be done by the eyes at the Blue Gray Breweriana Show in Herndon, Virginia as all the cans are empty there. Collectors and enthusiasts of everything imaginable with a brewery name on it are brought together by the Blue and Gray Show.

According to wtop.com, “Beer can collecting, which gained popularity in the 1970s and 1980s, has evolved to include all sorts of advertising. Items on display include everything from ashtrays and bottle openers to signs alive with bright neon colors, ascending bubbles or perhaps a revolving diorama depicting a horse-drawn carriage in a snowy landscape.”

Larry Handy, the Blue Gray Breweriana Brewery Collectible Show’s coordinator, said, “Most serious collectors are looking at items from either before prohibition (1919), or from the ’30s, ’40s, ’50s. Things before 1960 are of top interest. You’ll see everything from free cans in the hallway — just help yourself — to lithographs, prints or reverse glass signs in the thousands of dollars.”

As per wtop.com, “This event takes place in the individual hotel rooms of participants. People attending the event buy, sell and trade collectibles of varying value, ranging from rusted old cans to works of art. The Blue Gray Breweriana, Brewery Collectibles Show is at the Hilton Washington Dulles Airport in Herndon through Saturday.”
