A lot of us like to collect things. For some it is patches or magnets on the fridge from places you have visited in your travels. The hard part is usually how do you display your collection and what do you do with it? Well, if you are a beer drinker that collects bottle caps from your favorite suds, we have found just the thing for you – check out Beer Cap Maps.
Beer Cap Maps kind of started by accident in Madison, Wisconsin. The company was founded by two engineers who had always wanted to start their own small business. However, it was one of the founder’s sons, Jasper, that set the wheels in motion. Jasper loved collecting bottle caps during backyard cookouts and BBQs. After he amassed quite a collection and was outgrowing his handy zip lock baggy, his dad decided to have some fun on a laser cutter that he had access to and cut Jasper a map of the state of Wisconsin. The map was an instant hit with family and friends, and Beer Cap Maps was born.
Laser cut from 5mm thick plywood, Beer Cap Maps are available in the shape of all 50 states and Washington, D.C. They range in price from $39 to $49 plus shipping. Lead time is usually 1 to 2 weeks, but once that maps ship you should see them in roughly 2 to 3 days.
