Collection of Ireland's Vintage Beer Coasters Shows Best-Selling Brew Guinness's History - Colnect Collectibles

Many of the items that collectors collect are in fact associated with certain collections that have corroborated over time. To commemorate these specially themed collections, countries release special issues of these items that depict images and information that are relevant to them.

Through our “Colnect Collectibles” series we will highlight special collections by featuring Collectible items from our Colnect Catalogs that are associated with organized collectibles of related issue.




Rarely do history and beer coasters go hand in hand, like they do in the gorgeous collection out of Ireland featured here on Colnect. Since its inception over two hundred and fifty years ago by Arthur Guinness of St. James Gate in Dublin, Ireland, innovative, history wielding, and fun beer coasters have accompanied the brew. Above is an Arthur Guinness Son & Co. product explaining how the beer barrels were distributed via river barges for over two hundred years in Ireland.



On others, the lineage of bottled Guinness in "stone stouts" is made clear by beautiful pictures capturing the different ages of bottling techniques and the clear and proud Guinness signature on their own bottle.



Even the early pre-Twentieth century methods for racking the massive wooden kegs of beer are captured in glorious vintage depictions of a man manually rolling the barrel carefully along the racking shed for distribution. The Guinness stout has long been a staple of the world beer market, and will be for quite some time.



The Guinness beer coaster collection out of Ireland is unique and awesome in its recollection of the brew master's fabled past, and the famous caretakers of the brewery have felt it necessary to share their forgotten methods and photos to bring fans of the beer closer together through history. Find many more historic, educational, or exhilarating collectibles on Colnect.

Beer Coasters / Beer Mats - Colnect's Collectors New Addition

Colnect is expanding and reaching out to more collectors and we are pleased to announce that we have now added a new category of collectibles to our portfolio: Beer Coasters / Beer Mats

A coaster or beer mat is an absorptive mat on which to rest a glass of beer or other beverage upon.
Coasters are made from high density paperboard (cardboard) or several layers of tissue paper.  Beer mats are identified by their water absorbency and printability and standard coasters are usually square or round, but other shapes do exist.

In 1880, the first beer mats, made of thick paper pulp, were introduced by a German printing company as use to cover an open brew to ward off insects.  They have now become one of the best ways you can protect your furniture and bar counter from stains caused by liquid that accumulates on the bottom of a glass.

Beer mats are usually adorned with customized images - advertising a brand of beer, although they can also be used for promotional purposes to advertise anything from a drinking establishment, sports franchise, businesses or other special events.



Coasters are collected in a variety of ways. You can collect them according to theme, brewery, state, region, country, or simply collect everything.

The practice of collecting coasters or beer mats is known as tegestology and coaster or beer mat collectors are known as tegestologists.

Mirel Sinanaj [albcoins] has taken on the responsibility as coordinator of our new Beer Coasters / Beer Mats category.

So next time you are at the pub make sure to keep the beer coaster as a souvenir to add to your new collection or to use it to exchange for another collectible item.

Let’s make a special toast to Colnect's newly baptized Beer Coasters / Beer Mats category: “Cheers . . .!!!”

Happy collecting :)
