From RoadsideAmerica.com:
I am a long-time resident of the area, and can trace the bottle's history. It started out as a functioning water tank for Hoffman Beverages (soft drinks - they used to make a decent ginger ale), a long-gone NJ company. Hoffman sold the property to the Pabst Brewing Company, which erected an immense stockhouse/brewery on the site (1960s). Beer companies have been merged, beer sales have been flat (pardon me, I'm really sorry for that one) and this complex is, I believe, inactive. [Mark Heter, 04/05/2001]

They're trying to take it down and restore it, but are having some problems.
