If you live in the Twin Cities area of Minneapolis and St. Paul or Out-state Minnesota or Western Wisconsin or Northern Iowa and have an interest in steins we are always looking for new members and would love to have you join our group.

We regret we are not able to answer specific questions about the value of a particular stein--we refer those type of questions to our national organization---www.steincollectors.org
The Upper Midwest Society of Stein Collectors
celebrated our 40th year in 2010.
Our club has about 35 members and we meet in March, May, and September usually at member homes and occasionally at restaurants in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Meetings usually include lots of stein talk and some interesting show and tell. The collections of members are an interesting part of each meeting and often a member will speak on his or her special area of interest.
Additionally an effort is made to bring in speakers with great expertise in steins and related fields.
Below is a picture of some of our group of taken at a meeting held at Haus Maethner in Northern Minnesota.
In addition to our regular meetings we have Christmas Party every year--the one below took place at the Glockenspiel Restaurant in St Paul Mn
