Welcome to the British Beermat Collectors Society website.
Here you should find everything you want to know about our society and all things beermat collecting in the UK. You can find out our history, what we do, how we catalogue beermats, where your local meetings are, how to join, all about our prestigious beermat design annual awards and more importantly, how we raise money for charity every year.
There’s also information on beermats in general and tips on collecting and links to other sites related to brewery history or collecting breweriana.
Now that the delayed 2022 National is out of the way, (thanks for coming everyone, from all feedback it has been a great success), we will be doing some revamps of our website. As such most pages will be taken down and temporary holding pages in place until the work is completed. We will keep the contact us page up and running so anyone can use the contact form there to contact us about information or advice needed, joining and mats they are disposing of. We have just 2 official BBCS meetings arranged so far this year, Stourbridge on Saturday 3rd June (details below) and the 2023 National in Burton-on-trent on Friday the 8th September.
One of the main aims of the society is to not only to promote beermat collecting in general but to support those within the beermat fraternity that collect mats. As such we are particularly pleased that one of our long standing members along with our friends at Beermatmania have set up a new meeting in Albrighton in Shropshire in May. This, coupled with the biannual London Charity meetings set up by Gary Moore are essential meetings to visit and are open to everyone, not just society members. Information on the meetings is also below. See you all soon at one of the meetings.
