The Bayou Stein Verein
is a chapter of Stein
Collectors International headquartered in New
Orleans, Louisiana and serves the interests of stein collectors in
Louisiana, and Mississippi. It was founded in 1987 and has hosted an
Annual Convention in New Orleans for all members of Stein Collectors
Annual memberships are available for all members of SCI at the rate of
$15.00 per year per person. The Verein meets in March, June, September
and January in either a member's home or in a public facility. Although
food and beverages are served, currently there is no fee for attending
meetings in members' homes. Payment for meetings in public places is
the individual member’s responsibility. Typical meetings include a
short business session, a talk on a stein subject, a viewing of the
host’s stein collection and a "show and tell" session on steins brought
to the meeting by individuals.
The Bayou Stein Verein is also one of the organizations associated with
the Deutsches Haus,
a German Heritage organization in New Orleans which has its own stein
collection as well as being a good place to use one's beer steins to
drink draft German and Craft beers.
