About Us

Tavern Trove is dedicated to preserving the memory and history of America’s Brewing forefathers.

Who We Are

Founded in October of 1996 in Boulder, Colorado by Erik Amundson, our site has from that day been the largest website solely devoted to the breweriana hobby. At first the site was called "Columbine Collectables", named for the Colorado state flower. It debuted with 577 beer cans and dozens of pieces of breweriana. One early goal was to have more beer-related listings than eBay, and soon (for a short time at least) we did.

When the site was relaunched in 2003 as Tavern Trove, we boasted 3600 items from around the world. Today, July 4th, 2020, Tavern Trove has nearly 40,000 live items for sale, nearly all of them pre-1970, and a database of more than 90,000 items.

You will also notice that Tavern Trove has expanded its brewery section. We have taken the standard reference; American Breweries II by Dale P. Van Wieren, and updated it with new found information, photographs, logos, newspaper clippings, brewer biographies, and famous dates in history, in an ever-growing and fully searchable database. As of today we have 26,718 breweries listed.
