Welcome to the 12 Horse Brewery Collectors Club. We are a chapter of the Brewery Collectors Club of America (formally the Beer Can Collectors of America). Our members collect a wide variety of brewery items from cans and bottles, bottle caps, advertising and just about anything to do with a brewery. Most of our members reside in Western New York but we have members through out the United States too.
We are a group of local collectors dedicated to the preservation and collecting of Rochester New York’s strong brewing history. The club meets once a month. The meetings take place at either the Charlotte Tavern or one of the member’s houses. The meetings at member’s houses are to give the membership a chance to see other collections, trade cans and brewery items, and socialize. It is encouraged that members attend the monthly meetings. We are a family friendly organization children interested in the hobby are welcome as long as they are accompanied by a parent. 12 Horse members do not have to belong to the B.C.C.A. but are encouraged to join. The national organization offers many benefits to collectors that a local chapter can not always offer.
They chapter hosts an annual trade show in the Rochester area. Members, collectors and dealers come from all over the US and Canada to attend this show. There is never an admission fee to our show for walk ins.
