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 few years, it was resurrected under 
Jim Friesen's and Vern Hasting's leadership in 1995 and now has a membership of about 111 members who hail from more than 20 countries spanning the globe. 
We focus on collecting at least  One Can from every One of the C

It is a VERY taste-full-filling Hobby

Sadly, a friend and a leader of international breweriana collecting, Juan Carlos DeMarco passed away on October 23rd. 

He will be greatly missed.   Through his tireless efforts the BCWC was formed, and now 75 collecting clubs from across the globe gather every other year.   We will honor his memory in Turkey next year.
