    Now this Bergheim Beer Can Knit Hat isn’t something you see everyday! This particular one is made out of cans from the Bergheim Brewing Company located in Reading, PA. Hats like these were popular back in the 1970’s; they were homemade from empty beer cans that were cut out and applied into the knitting of a hat. I’ve seen other variations of these hats before that use different beer cans; most are in the “bucket hat” style like this one although I have seen some with a small brim on the front kind of like a baseball cap. Locally I know of a few collectors that have the Reading Premium Beer version and one collector with a Sunshine Beer version.

    They are god awfully ugly and gaudy but still pretty cool. One thing’s for sure, my wife hates this thing! So I’m sure I’ll be wearing this to a few future beer shows.
