About Us

BarCloset.com's Story:

In Sept 2006, a 21 year old man named Sam was looking for some 80's clothes at a La Crosse, WI thrift store.  He stumbled across a vintage knitted Heilemans Old Style Beer Sweater.  Without hesitation, Sam bought this sweater and ran home to show it off to his friends.  Two weeks later, he wore it in the largest Oktoberfest celebration in the the Midwest (www.oktoberfestusa.com).  The sweater transformed a good day into a unimaginable experience.  Sam was blown away on how a simple vintage sweater brought on a barrage of attention.  The day was filled with high-fives, pictures, free beer, and questions on where he got it and are there any more.

That day was the beginning of Sam's path to find more awesome beer items.  He began his hunt to find as many cool beer items as possible and share them with everyone.  He made a few websites and the then condensed them all in to BarCloset.com.
