    Illinois Man Orders Custom Beer-Can Coffin

    SOUTH CHICAGO HEIGHTS, Ill. — Bill Bramanti will love Pabst Blue Ribbon eternally, and he's got the custom-made beer-can casket to prove it. "I actually fit, because I got in here," said Bramanti of South Chicago Heights.

    The 67-year-old Glenwood village administrator doesn't plan on needing it anytime soon, though.

    He threw a party Saturday for friends and filled his silver coffin — designed in Pabst's colors of red, white and blue — with ice and his favorite brew.

    "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?" said Bramanti's daughter, Cathy Bramanti, 42.

    Bramanti ordered the casket from Panozzo Bros. Funeral Home in Chicago Heights, and Scott Sign Co. of Chicago Heights designed the beer can.

    Argue all you want about the point of doing something like that, but whatever else is true ... it's got style!

    I want to buried in a cask of Balvenie Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

    I may be headed to hell, but I want to arrive with scotch good enough to drink with the devil himself.

    It seems to be making a comeback in certain areas. I don't know why.
