Session #52 roundup posted

The SessionBrian Stechschulte has posted the roundup for Session #52: Beer Collectibles & Breweriana. I was AWOL, not just because most our collectibles were on a big truck rolling from New Mexico to Missouri. Moving, granted on a shorter term basis, turned out to be just as disruptive as traveling around in an RV for 14 months.

Unpacking since Saturday had included more pots and pans than beer collectibles, but I’ve come across several items that would have fit perfectly in Session #52. Oh, well.

Brian picked out two quotes to kickoff his roundup:

The things others reject or throw out there for nerds to pick up or get stuck with. It is all crap. – Alan McLeod, A Good Beer Blog

Brewers like to think that the flavor of the beer is the bottom line, but I would argue that one has to consider all aspects of beer enjoyment to have a truly great product that sees longevity. These items remind me that every beer has a story and I like to think about the entire process when I try a new beer or an old favorite. – Beer PHXation

Back to unpacking. To be followed, eventually, by posts about beer.

    Crap gets a bad rap.

    Saw the fires in NM and was a little concerned, glad you’re further east.

    Thanks, Steve. It would be great to figure out a way to get the excess of water here (minor flooding in nearby St. Charles) to Arizona, and now western New Mexico.

    Alan, the crap that I keep, I try to make useful. If it just lays there and collect dust, then it’s crap. I have some mid 50’s beer trays too, but I use them, even if it seems silly to cart out 2 beers on a tray.

    Wish I’d seen this earlier. Quite a rant against collecting, concluding thus:

    “What, in the end, is signified by the term ‘doll person’ beyond the image of someone enraptured of scary little human baby simulacra who need a lots of special attention from Mommy but never breathe or cry? Is there any person who, in concept, it is less appealing to imagine taking a meal with than a ‘doll person?’ Perhaps there is. It’s one of those scary types with Mickey Mantle’s hair in a safe deposit box.”

    People of the dolls… People of the beer coasters… hmmm.

      Don’t you wonder how many people have hair [fill in the name of your favorite cult brewer] tucked away in a safety deposit box?
