ONE CAN/ONE COUNTRY
A Chapter of the BCCA
This website for collectors of beer cans from every country in the world.
Welcome to our OC/OC website!
OC/OC is the 136th chapter of the
OC/OC started in 1990, and while it went dormant for a couple of years, it was resurrected under Jim Friesen and Vern Hastings leadership in 1995 and now has a membership of about 130 members who hail from more than 20 countries spanning the globe. We focus on collecting
at least One Can from every One of the Countries that has ever brewed and canned their own beer - and many of us will also collect cans made for sale in countries, islands, provinces, territories, ... and almost any other category we can think of!
It is a very taste-full hobby!
IF YOU ARE WONDERING HOW MANY COUNTRIES ARE THERE, TAKE A LOOK AT:

This website is always under construction: latest update March 22nd, 2017 . Eventually it will contain links to all of the past newsletters, a compendium of the first cans known from places around the world, and many other items of interest to those who delight in collecting beer cans from across our "blue marble".
WARNING - Go-daddy has made the decision to "upgrade the website software which means that at some point the website will have to be re-built - something that could take some time form the volunteers who contribute to it - APOLOGIES for any inconvenience.
