My name is John Coughlan and I have been fascinated by all things beer related since I was very young. I started collecting beer coasters when I was about 15 years old. I am not quite sure why I started such a collection but I always liked the beer commercials on TV and was intrigued by the branding and logos the different beer companies used. Throughout my early 20s I was more interested in drinking beer than collecting beer merchandise but as I got older I have returned to my hoarding of beer related products with a renewed passion. This site is primarily for displaying my collection of beer coasters, glasses and some other beer related merchandise, however I also plan to start writing some blogs and exploring the ever increasing growth of the craft beer industry in Ireland and around the world. The site is a work in progress so please use the contact form to give me a shout with any questions, ideas or indeed just to say hi!
