    I have started collecting brewery signs. Any suggestions? Websites? Favorite brewery with a cool tacker?

    I like all of the Odell tackers. Their artwork is cool IMO.

    Pretty much every brewery with an online shop has a tacker. The Smuttynose one is pretty cool.

    I saw the new Heady Topper one whilst in VT last weekend. Pretty cool, but I opted for another 4 pack of heady instead of the tacker. As you can imagine, it's chrome and black, just like the can. Not available online yet, apparently.

    For those looking, I am going to add several to the tin tacker list

    Serria Nevada - 18 X 12
    Highland Brewery Logo - but big at 28" round
    Fat tire - nice bike detail
    Red hare brewery
    Bells ( two nice ones ) logo and nature
    Monday Night Brewery - unique, but not embossed
    Dogfish Head - several sizes
    Sweetwater brewery.
    Lazy Magnolia Brewery
    Blue Moon ( ok not really a craft beer, but deepest embossed takcer that I have...very well made)
    Sam Addams ( many to choose from )

    My favorite is:
    leinenkugel Brewing Company. Logo and canoe are way cool....but long...35"

    Most of these can be bought from the brewery store although ebay has the best prices on the blue moon.

    Ballast Point has some pretty cool ones. Unfortunately it doesn't look like they're for sale on their website. I have the Victory at Sea tacker. Want to get the Sea Monster Stout one next.

    Southern tier has an awesome one. Its like a huge bottle cap. I started buying them after I realized it only added like $2 to shipping costs when I had glasses ordered too.
