    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.
