That's $2,500 worth of recyclables in my neck of the woods.

"Her sons would do work from time to time, replacing rusty steel cans with new ones and restoring a hurricane-destroyed beer wall."

Supplying new aluminum cans sounds like my kind of sloppy drunk work.

50k cans over twenty years is 6.8 cans of beer per day.  That is a lot of beer drinking for a long time.

shoot I've drank twice that in that period of time at least. Never thought to keep the cans though, probably a good thing.

Ahhh Texas that explains it. Imagine if he had to deal with a HOA and zoning.

Even crazier... 50,000 cans of beer * 154 calories per beer = 2,200 lbs of fat. Just think of it... this guy could be over a ton thinner if he didn't drink those beers.

What a shiatty article. One single picture? Jesus, it would have been better if someone just told me to Google the Beer House to begin with, and I hadn't wasted time on that shiatt-ass "news" site.

FTFA: A child of the Great Depression, John Milkovisch didn't throw anything away - not even the empty cans of beer he enjoyed each afternoon with his wife.

I think full cans of beer would be a lot more enjoyable.

Yeah, I eventually found that. Very cool, but the article definitely should have had a few more pics, or provided the link, that's for sure.
