Buried in a tinny: US man shows eternal devotion to beer
May 5, 2008

f_0_beer-coffin_320-200.jpgAn American man loves his favourite beer so much, he’s had a coffin made to look like a can of the brew.

Bill Bramanti got a local sign company in Chicago Heights to make it look like a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer in its signature colours of red, white and blue.

“I actually fit, because I got in here,” he told Associated Press.

The 67-year-old has thrown a party and filled the coffin with ice and his favourite brew.

Bramati’s daughter at least sees some method to her father’s apparant madness.

“Why put such a great novelty piece up on a shelf in storage when you could use it only the way Bill Bramanti would use it?” she asked.
