When making NABA Convention plans, we advocate that you arrive early in Pittsburgh, because on Tuesday, July 28th, NABA is offering an extraordinary house tour itinerary.
Please note that registered members will need to be wearing their badges and to provide their own transportation for home admissions. NABA will provide addresses and directions.
First we'll tour the collection of James Mickinak. Jim showcases the most amazing, extensive and preeminent Rolling Rock collection. In addition, Jim has a stellar Western Pennsylvania breweriana collection. Jim's collection is housed in a separate building behind his home and features a full sized 1930's era bar and backbar. NABA guests will be treated to an open bar as Jim has hired a bartender for the day to serve us. Jim has also graciously offered to serve a lunch of pizza, wings & cake.
Next up is the spectacular collection of Chip Echnoz. This is truly a massive and museum-caliber collection encompassing Western Pa, Eastern Ohio and West Virginia Breweriana. Plans are to eventually house the collection at the renovated Pittsburgh Brewing Co. as a permanent museum that will be open to the public.
Our third stop will feature the collection of Matt Welch. Matt’s terrific collection specializes in TOC's and ROG's and spans multiple geographies. If a piece is rare and minty, it's on his radar. Matt's walls are filled with great breweriana that also includes neon, signs clocks and chalks.
Don’t miss your chance to personally view so many rare pieces of breweriana in one day than on Tuesday, July 28th. Be sure to make your plans now to join NABA this Summer in Pittsburgh!
