... an even bigger area of beer related collections is the collection of beer coasters. Cardboard underliner used in Bars, Pubs or Restaurants with similar commercial messages from the breweries than used on bottle caps. Coasters are produced in different shapes (round, square, ...) and either single sided or double sided printed. Same like collections of bottle caps the quality range of collection from different collectors is usind a wide spectrum. Another similarity to collecting bottle caps is that the prices achieved on sale platforms for very old or rare pieces can reach very large Dollar/Euro numbers as documented in collector forums or in the press. One more aspect to be considered when thinking of collecting beer coasters will be the space issue - a moderate collection of coasters will used quite some space and ar often more difficult to display than for an example bottle caps.
Any feedback or suggestions from beer coaster collectors is highly welcome and appreciated.
