Beer tackers have been around as long as commercial beer in the United States as marketing materials for breweries. Originally, you would see these more frequently painted on wood. However, the dawn of the industrial age led to easier to mass produce metal products. This led to the shift from wooden beer tackers to those mass produced on aluminum.
There are many individuals across the United States who are avid collectors of beer tackers, such as our 16” round tin tacker. In fact, there is even a large collectables society for collecting beer related items. This organization is called the Brewery Collectables Club of America. The BCCA was founded in 1970 and has grown into a large organization of people who collect beer cans pint glasses and even tin tackers from breweries. This organization has chapters all around the country and even hosts annual conventions.
