A MAJOR COLLECTION OF UNOPENED COMMEMORATIVE BOTTLED BEERS
IN THE UK  IS NOW UP FOR SALE

I am selling what I believe to be the largest collection of full commemorative bottled beers in the UK. The collection contains bottled beers produced from 1869 up to the end of 1999. All are full and unopened, with their original contents.

I have approximately 2,600 bottled beers left. See the Association for British Brewery Collectables Complete Commemorative Bottled Beer Collectors List for a complete listing of all bottles known to have been produced.

You can view a complete list of what's available, provided you have Microsoft Excel, 2007 or later. The list is in Excel .xlsx format.  Just click here.


Noteworthy parts of my collection include;

  • Three champagne sized Barclays Russian Imperial Stouts
  • A 1977 Royal Silver Jubilee collection
  • A collection of full UK issued beers produced for the Millennium, with a representative selection of beers produced outside the UK
  • A huge range of Guinness commemoratives

I have been collecting bottled beers since 1977, so my collection is the result of over 30 years of work. Anyone interested is welcome to make an appointment to view. If you have any questions or want to view the collection, which is located near Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, UK,  e-mail me.
