I have a can opener with the logo on it. It’s a retractable bottle/can opener. Pretty cool.

Sunshine Brewery I believe it was located along the river off of Schuylkill Ave. What was the address?

As a kid, we use to eat at a bar restaurant called the Willow across or down the street from the brewery back in the early 1960s
