    Either this is in a town which happens to have that name or the people who put up the tower have a sense of humor!

    Actually this was a project. They wanted to see how the population would react to having Bourbon delivered directly to their homes. They buy it directly from Beam by the tank truck load.

    Actually once had a GF who grew up there. Had her take a picture of that watertower for me once when she was home for a visit. Have had it framed and hanging near my bar for years. Always meant to bring it up and forgot.

    Nice Jug/tower on top of Michter's also (sorry no link.) Sadly also deteriorated almost beyond recognition.
