Lite Beer Can.

Giant Miller Lite Beer Can

A giant can of Miller Lite beer stands outside of On the Rox Pub and Grub on old US Route 40 east of Altamont. It's a little tricky if you're looking for food or drinks because On the Rox shares a large parking lot with Sweet Peas Consignment Shop and it appears to be one big building. Bonus: A rusty old tow truck with googly eyes and goofy teeth. "Tow Mater" is a character from the "Cars" movie franchise based on a 1956 International Harvester tow truck.

The giant beer can is lit at night.

Deliberate, unabashed product placement; not a storage tank.
