of an expert panel has acquired the most unique piece of Canadian brewery advertising.
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.
