Introduction to the New Breweriana.com
If you're reading this and you are a previous user of Breweriana.com, then you probably realized Breweriana.com now has a new look, new content, and new functionality. I'm sure there will be bugs to work out in the first few weeks so please bear with us as we work them out. Hopefully, the new site will help provide you better service in the long run.
Much of the content of the new site is aimed at educating the new collector or the potential new collector. Much of the content is pretty basic (Beer Cans 101 if you will). Over time, more detailed information for more advanced collectors also will be added.
Here are a few pointers related to the new site:
To view products for sale or to research items previously sold on Breweriana.com (note, this database is limited upon going live with this new site but will grow rapidly), click on the "Store and Searchable Archives" tab and follow instructions from there.
When the large product image loads, placing your cursor over the left side of the image will cause a "Previous" link to appear and placing your cursor over the right side of the image will cause a "Next" link to appear. These "Previous" and "Next" links enable quick browsing of the several photos of each product listed.
NOTE: ALL PRICES NOW INCLUDE SHIPPING/HANDLING!
To quickly see what items were most recently added to a category, click on the category and after the thumbnails load, select "Latest Products" from the drop-down menu at top. The order can be reversed by clicking the bar to the right of the drop down menu.
"Sold" icons no longer will be displayed when items sell, they simply will disappear from the available items browsing list.
The web site is secure and you can place your credit card orders with confidence.
To be notified when updates happen to one or more particular sections of the web page, click on the "Receive Updates" link in small text at the top of the page and fill out the form that appears.
The blog section is very limited upon going live with this site but will grow rapidly over the next months. Note that Brewery Histories will be entered as blog entries. This will enable folks with an interest in these breweries (descendants, collectors, historians, etc) to provide feedback and add additional details. We hope you will enjoy the blog entries and provide feedback.
The site requires that users register with Breweriana.com before placing ordes, making blog entries, etc. Your information will be kept strictly confidential.
