OTTAWA, Ohio (AP) - Talk about an expensive drink. A man in northwest
Ohio has shelled out $740 for the first beer ever sold at a county
fair.
 
Putnam County Fair officials auctioned off the first can of beer to
raise money for the fair, which is about 50 miles south of Toledo.
 
Lanny Wagner of Continental won the first can Thursday night along
with a neon sign commemorating the event.
 
He tells The Lima News that he plans on giving the sign to the
American Legion Hall in his hometown.
 
Now that the auction is over, the fair is selling cans of beer for
$2.50 each.
