My Favorite Art Gallery is The Market-Bantam Craft Beer Cooler

I have to hand it to you craft beer makers of Connecticut, you use such beautiful artwork on your cans. My wife and I wandered into the awesome craft beer cooler at The Market-Bantam the other night, and spent about 15 minutes appreciating the 38 degree art gallery.
