It was a sad day, in the summer of 2005
when it was announced that the Long-neck
Leinie was to be no more. Many summers
of enjoying the thirst-quenching, perspiration
relieving, nectar of the Gods from the
timeless vessel would become only a
distant memory. This limited edition, commemorating
the bottle of choice, is a testimony to the long
standing tradition surrounding the call of
"How 'bout a long-neck?"
Ned had eight of these shadow boxes made for this
These are being sent to my sons, my brother, my
son-in-law, two nephews, and a cousin all of whom meet
in the summer at our lake cabins in Northern Wisconsin.
Leinenkugel beer is the beer of choice and until this
summer, 2005, was sold in "long-neck", not screw top bottles.
The new owner (Miller) of the famous brewery announced
that there would be no more long-neck bottles, so I
saved eight bottles for this project."
