Unless you’ve been lugging around chunks of turf in your backpack, odds are you don’t often get the chance to carry a part of Ohio Stadium with you. We’re incredibly proud to change that with this keychain, reclaimed from the original redwood bleachers that stood in the Horseshoe from 1922-2000. You’re certain to grow jealous of your keys—after all, think how close they’ll be to the bleachers that saw six national titles, Woody, Archie, and more Script Ohios than we can even count. Pay homage.
Many years ago, Surf Ohio founder Ron Kaplan had the opportunity to ask famed Czechoslovakian cosmonaut and member of the European Parliament, Vladimir Remek, if he would share the keys to his many accomplishments and abundant happiness. Despite the language barrier, he never forgot the profound, insightful reply of this international space hero.
“Kolda beer. Vorm vimmen.”
Now, as much as 50% of Vladimir’s formula for success can be within your grasp with the new Surf Ohio koozie from HOMAGE, crafted from the same type of innovative, insulating foam that was probably used somewhere on the Russian Soyuz rocket that blasted Vladimir to space-age stardom in 1978 – the same year Surf Ohio was born. Printed with Surf Ohio on two sides, this attractive koozie will keep your beverage chillin’ while you take care of that other 50%. Salut!

Vinegar, brown mustard seed, spices, and a heavy dose of down-home Ohio know-how are packed into each container. So even if you’re not down at Progressive Field, feel like you’re in the middle of the Indians action by slathering your burgers and dogs in Cleveland’s famous spicy goodness.
