Waverly Brewing

The other day a patented can opener with corkscrew was listed on eBay, with a decent buy it now price. And, ordinarily, I would have passed on a piece like this, but the advertising made it pretty interesting.

It is marked, WAVERLY BREWING CO., BREWERS OF UNEXCELLED BEERS, WAVERLY, IOWA

On a can opener?

Now the opener is an American patent; Taylor’s 1906 patent, and I am sure I have a couple of those laying in a drawer, but the beer advertisement does make it pretty cool.

I am guessing Tipped Worm Johnny already has this, so perhaps it will stay in the collection.
