Grand Prize Chapter of BCCA in Houston

Ken Knisely is the president of the Grand Prize Chapter of the Brewery Collectibles Club of America (BCCA), an international group of nearly 4000 collectors. Located in Houston, they are a group of people that have an interest in the hobby of beer can and breweriana collecting and are named after the primary brand of beer brewed by the Gulf Brewery of Houston from 1933-1963.

The group publishes a newsletter called The Guzzler, which "contains not only info on beer can and breweriana collecting, but also industry news, and stories about the hilarious and/or tragic things that drunks occasionally do, all written from my sick, twisted, humerous point of view," ken wrote. A recent issue Ken sent me, includes a story about finding a previously unknown Grand Prize beer can.

Ken very kindly sent some pictures of his collection, and while the rare can is not included in the photos, his friend Jessica is.

I have more pictures of Jessica with Ken's Collection, and I will post them periodically.

Thanks, Ken!
