About Bev Moore

Bev Moore was a vivacious lady who collected Canadian brewery tip trays, salesman samples and most of all friends. Her husband Jack also actively pursued all breweriana from O’Keefe, maker of his favourite brew – Old Vienna. Bev & Jack always had an open door policy to fellow collectors and a multitude of friends.
Bev Moore, a native of Port Colborne, Ontario quite suddenly passed away in October 1994. The award was inaugurated in January 1995 at the suggestion of Lynne & Wray Martin to honour her life.
