CANADA 1890-1950

Many of you have heard me promise this book for at least 8 years. It is finally ready!!! It contains all the beer trays, change trays and tray liners from Canadian Breweries since 1890 that I was able to list with the help of many of you.
The book is fully bilingual and includes a price guide.
The cost of the book is $60.

The shipping charges from Canada Post to ship it everywhere in Canada is $21.50. But there is room for 2 books in the box for the same shipping cost, meaning $10.75 per book. I can also use a bigger box and ship 3 books for a shipping cost $27 ($9 per book). So if you can combine shipping with a couple of friends, you will save a little bit more than $10 per book on shipping. Mail orders should be made via my email: The same goes for payment by electronic transfer.
Plusieurs d’entre vous m’ont entendu promettre la parution de ce livre depuis au moins 8 ans. Il est finalement prêt!!! Il contient tous les plateaux de bière, les plateaux de change et les buvards de plateaux des brasseries canadiennes depuis 1890 que j’ai pu répertorier avec l’aide de plusieurs d’entre vous.
Tout en couleurs, le livre est entièrement bilingue et comporte un guide de prix.

Les frais d’expédition de Postes Canada pour l’envoyer partout au Canada sont 21,50 $. Mais il y a de la place pour 2 livres dans la boîte pour les mêmes frais d’expédition, ce qui réduit ceux-ci à 10,75 $ par livre. Je peux aussi utiliser une boîte plus grande et envoyer 3 livres pour un coût d’expédition de 27 $ (9 $ par livre). Donc, si vous pouvez combiner votre achat avec quelques amis, vous économiserez un peu plus de 10 $ par livre sur les frais d’expédition.
Les commandes postales doivent se faire via mon courriel:
Il y va de même pour le paiement par transfert électronique.


150 Years of Canadian Beer Labels

TouchWood Editions Presents

150BeerLabels_cvr_catIn celebration of Canada’s 150 birthday, one of the country’s most avid collectors of breweriana showcases a stunning selection of beer labels dating from the late 1870s to the present day.

What’s more Canadian than beer? Craft brewing has exploded across Canada, reinvigorating the country’s love and appreciation for its favourite beverage. But Canadians have always treasured beer—a fact evidenced by these vintage labels that showcase both stunning skills in typography and a true passion for the brew.

In addition to the earliest vintage labels from iconic breweries like Dow and Labatt, discover an eye-opening cross-section of the country’s beer-brewing history through the artwork of ales, porters, lagers, and malts from brewers east to west, many of which are long forgotten.

Lawrence C. Sherk was one of the country’s foremost collectors of Canadian beer memorabilia, with the second-largest collection of beer labels in Canada. In 2011, he donated nearly 3000 of his labels, most of them dating from before 1945, to the Thomas Fisher Rare Books Library at the University of Toronto, where they can be viewed as part of the library’s paper-ephemera collection. Before retiring in 2001, Sherk was a renowned horticulturist, though history was his first love.

Available in fine bookstores.
