The Mid-Michigan Chapter was chartered in 1981 and recognized as the 97th Chapter of the Brewery Collectibles Club of America. The Chapter is the biggest in Michigan and typically ranks as one of the largest chapters in our hobby. Our Mid-Michigan’s membership Roster contains Presidents, Officers and Board Members of the BCCA, as well as inductees into the BCCA Hall of Fame and recipients of The Don Hicks Presidential Award.
As an affiliate of the national BCCA Organization, the Mid-Michigan Chapter provides members with services on a local level. Our prime function is sponsoring trade shows where members can gather to not only procure cans and breweriana (memorabilia), but also to share news and information regarding the hobby.
Our Chapter hosts two major shows each year: WINTERFEST is held in the month of January at the Dom Polski Hall in Flint, Michigan – – and – – SUMMERSWAP in July at the American Legion Post 150 and adjacent Boyscout Park in Frankenmuth, Michigan. Each of these events draws many collectors from the Great Lakes Region, Canada and beyond. The Chapter also holds two other chapter meetings during the spring and fall seasons.
The Mid-Michigan Chapter also provides members with a very informative newsletter called “FOAM MATTERS” published four times a year. Besides the fellowship that develops among the members, the Chapter offers technical advice and assistance to those that are new to our hobby.
