On Cloverland Drive in Ironwood there is a giant red Stormy Kromer cap with a plaque giving a brief history of its origins. The caps have been made locally in Ironwood since 2000. The smiley face water tower of Ironwood can be seen from Cloverland Drive just past the cap.

[Laurie, 05/20/2013]

The red Stormy Kromer cap has been a fashion badge in Michigan's UP for over a century. It looks like a red baseball cap, but has been modified to be rugged, warm, and to not blow off in the UP wind.
