Pennsylvania Beer Coaster Guide

By Len Rosol email


Latest update – 1/20/2000 – Added 5 new breweries and 47 coasters to the guide today. In those 47 were 9 additional Latrobe’s and a Pittsburgh Brewing Iron City Draft Beer update. Tom Reynolds send me a couple of scans of additional coasters from the Philadelphia Brewing Company, I’ll add them out there with the next update. Thanks to everyone for their help and insight.

I thought that this site would be done by now, but the responsibilities of being a recent father were much more than I had anticipated. I NEVER knew just how much time being a father to an infant took. Anyone who wants to see my little boy (the guy who takes all of my time), you can visit his site (much more frequent updates) at

My collection is geared more towards the western end of the state, especially the Pittsburgh area. I am looking for many coasters from the central and eastern portions of the state. Once a brewery is listed, that means that all of the coasters that I have from that brewery have been added, so feel free to contact me with pictures of additions to the guide. I will attribute them to your collection.
