Beer. I come from the land of beer and football. PITTSBURGH! Anyway. I decided to make a beer cozy for the ladies who love beer and football just as much as the next yinzer ;). Some moms choose wine, us Pgh moms like our brews. I also have to give a shout out to my UNCLE Gary who grows his own hops and brews his own award winning beer(I kid you not). This was inspired by you uncle Gary!
