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.

I'll settle for having my ashes put into an empty bottle of Highland Park 25. I rarely get it, so my ashes might as well enjoy the fumes in years to come.

As Col. Faulkner said, my liver is to be buried separately, with honors.

You've got that right. How the hell could anyone have PBR as a "favorite beer?"

Why would anyone want to be buried in an advertisement?

That ranks right up there with having ads tattooed on your forehead.

He was an avid Ace Frehley fan so it wouldn't surprise me.

He requested it. Gene Simmons gave it to the family. Wouldn't take any money for it. You can google it. I remember reading several stories about the casket at the time.

Be patient. There's plenty of time for that after you die.
