The Dog-Gone-Good chapter of NABA was founded by former president, Mark Brooks from Frankenmuth. He worked at the old brewery. They brewed "Dog Gone Good" beer, hence the name. Through their first 12 years they have had summer buy - sell - trade shows at Heritage Park in Frankenmuth. Dan McShane of Bay City, became president in 2001 and moved their summer show to Bay City. This is their 17th annual show.

(Above) It is a sale/swap meet for old "as in pre-prohibition" beer/brewery advertising including bottles, cans, tap knobs, trays, cases, signs. Right on through to current items such as mirrors, hunting - sports - racing - tin tackers and neons.

McShane adds, "Also our chapter is hosting NABA's national convention next year from 7-31-2007 thru 8-5-2007 at the DoubleTree hotel right here in Bay City. We have the whole hotel for that week. It will bring in about 250 people to Bay City."
