    Here are some of my most wanted caps. As always, if you know somebody with some stashes of bottle caps lying around....put them in touch with me. I'd love to get my paws on them.

    Shiner caps from the 1990s and older
    older Leini's caps
    Gravity Brewing Company
    St Stan's
    Frederick
    Blubeer
    red or yellow Buzzard Bay
    Celis from 90's and older
    Seven Brides
    Eddie McStiff's
    older Weinhards
    Brooklyn Dry Irish Stout (orange cap)
    Arcade brewery
    Oddside Ales
    Jester King (with face on it)
    Frankenmuth (with dachshound on it)

    Just to name a few:eek:

    Yeah, it's has the "B" logo on the cap, but it is orange. Shouldn't be, but it has proven hard for me to get in the South.

    Thanks!

    Also, if any of you are brewery owners or have personalized homebrew caps, I'd love to add them to the collection

Bunch of Leinenkugel's caps with the fancy art on them. A small number Of caps from Wernesgruner pils from Germany. Victory,Sam Adams,Franziskaner,Red Budweiser,Leini's nut brown they don't brew anymore too. Bag's reaching crytical mass at this point...

    Not sure really. Just save the extras from 6'rs,12 packs,etc that don't wind up in my bottle collection. I've added more since then. Like from The Brew Kettle in Strongsville,Kona Brewing in Hawaii & Columbus Brewing. I figured sooner or later,somebody will want them for some artsy man cave/home bar thing or other?...

    Anyone else save caps?

    Quite a few years back, I remember shipping a sizeable amount to a fellow member on this board. I think she may have even posted about it. I know she posted pictures of what she was doing with them. I'd saved more and she never came back here.

    Ended up saving them, eventually giving them to a friend who was going to use them for his bar top. He's used some of the duplicates for other things, but we're still working towards enough for completion of his bar top. (Incongruous to me that, as much as we all drink, we've not been able to find enough unique caps for him to complete it. Guess we'd better keep it up. And maybe stop the whole "in cans" purchases for a while. haha)

    What about making a bathroom floor out of them and then pour floor epoxy over them to set them? I've seen pennies done in this manner.
