While The Bottle Scrue Times is a newsletter that is available only to members of the ICCA, there have been articles from the BST that have been put online and made available for anyone that is interested. If you visit the-icca.net, you can find all kinds of information about the club, but if you click on the Library link, you will see a list of articles that are available to read.
These include e-books, articles, and presentations from Don Bull, John Morris, Ian Hunter, the late Bob Nugent, and a few that I have penned.
As of today, there are two more additions to the Library.
In Belgium Jens Anbjerg, Bjorn Berger, and Helgir Solheim gave a presentation on corkscrews being used as a closure in beer bottles, and the corkscrews that were made to remove said corks.

The other article, Tommy and I worked on together. And, it features his Williamson Flash Collection. Definitely worth a visit, and the pictures turned out great. For those wondering what Flashes TC has in his collection, it includes a list as well–although he has added a few more since this was published several months ago.

Over time, we will continue to add more articles to the library. And, I will provide an update to the blog when these articles are live for everyone’s consumption.
For those who want a preview of Tommy’s Flashes, here are a few photos:
