What's this? It's a... a... giant MUG! No, it's Hannon's Root Beer, a local favorite in Valparaiso, Indiana. Sporting an enormous root beer mug, this is a roadside attraction at its best. Need some cool suds on a hot summer day? Grab a cold one at Hannon's.

UPDATE 11/09 : Hannon's Root Beer Stand in Valparaiso, IN is no longer in existence. It has been replaced by a Mercantile Bank. The old root beer mug sign was purchased and erected at a new location by a new "Frost-Top" drive-in on the other side of town. It too is now closed, and sadly, was very short-lived. The mug remains at that location, which has since been turned into a First Source Bank. At least Valparaiso still has the trademark mug to remember the old Hannon's by.

I wish they would stop tearing down all these great vintage roadside attractions! My family loves traveling to see quirky sites like these! We have a blog,“Go BIG or Go Home,” which chronicles what happens when our small-town family visits the “world’s largest”…whatever! http://GoBIGorGoHomeblog.com

This is incorrect. Hannon's Root Beer Stand was replaced by a Walgreens Pharmacy. When the "Frost-Top" drive-in on the other side of town went out of business, it was replaced by a Mercantile Bank.
