Merry Arts is Auctioning Off Its Browns Bud Light Victory Fridge For Charity

As the Browns 2018 season continues to drive fans to tears, and by extension, the bottle, Lakewood's Merry Arts Pub & Grille is here to bring a small ray of sunshine into Clevelanders' lives.

Blessed with hosting one of those Bud Light Victory Fridges at its establishment — which many a happy fan will recall all finally opened on Sept. 20 after two years with only one Browns win — Merry Arts is now selling its empty fridge to the highest bidder, with all proceeds going to the Asperger/Autism Network charity. And the winner gets more than just a cooler.

The eBay description is as follows:
Own your own part of Cleveland Football history! One of the very few "Victory Fridges" along with an autographed authentic Baker Mayfield NFL helmet with all authentic stickers (green NFL quarterback sticker and #6 sticker). Cooler is 67"(H), 22"(W) and 24"(D)—holds up to 250-12 ounce cans. 
Also note that the fridge is considered "new with some marks." We can only imagine how the fridge received said marks.

At time of publication, the bidding had reached $1,675, but there's still plenty of time for that number to improve, as the online auction is set to close Nov. 2.
