45-Foot-Tall Bottle of Beer

Field review by the editors.

Orion, Michigan

In 1995 a microbrewery and steakhouse was built along I-75. Its steel grain silo was fashioned into a 45-foot-tall bottle to advertise the business's signature brew, Big Buck. The place closed in 2017, but rather than let the bottle go to waste, it was purchased by a beer distributer, trucked to its headquarters, and relabeled to promote a national brand. The new owners have said that this is likely the bottle's final destination, as they didn't realize until they tried to move it that it weighed over five tons.
