Breweriana in Indiana

"Modern" is the last word anyone attending the 2nd annual Breweriana Trade Show in Indianapolis on Sept. 29 will want to hear.

The event, sponsored by the South-Central Indiana Brewers chapter of the Brewery Collectible's Club of America, will showcase collectors, dealers and others interested in antiques dealing with the brewing industry. Such things as containers (like the 1937 cone-top Hoosier Beer can shown here), brewery signs, advertising items, labels, coasters and more will be on display and up for swap or sale from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 2100 E. 71st Street.

Why Indianapolis? Says SCIB charter member Chip Viering: "Indiana played a key role in the advancement of beer and ale brewing in America, beginning as far back at the 1870s. Every one of our key cities had a local brewery and some of those pre-Prohibition era brewery items are very scarce and desirable to collectors."
