A man in Northwest Ohio paid $740 this week to buy the first can of beer ever sold at the Putnam County Fair in Ottawa. The beer normally sells for $2.50. Lanny Wagner of Continental bought the beer during an auction that helped raise money for the fair. He also picked up a neon sign. "I plan to have it hung at the Continental American Legion Hall," he told the Lima News. There is a major, major hole in the news reporting of this story. The Lima News and other media never reported what brand of beer it was.
