Bottle of Electrolight Beer

Description
The EV1 was the first modern electric car designed for a mass market. Beginning in 1996, General Motors built 1,117 of the cars at the Lansing Craft Centre in Lansing, Michigan and leased most of them to consumers in California, Arizona, and Georgia. This bottle of Electrolight home brew, donated by GM engineer Jon Bereisa, represents the camaraderie of EV1 staff members, who volunteered for their assignments and socialized after work hours.
