In Honor Of Can Day, Don’t Miss The Can House

In honor of the first cans of beer being sold today, you should really check out the world famous Beer Can House in Houston, Texas.  John Milkovisch started build the Beer Can house in 1968.  He started landscaping with rocks, metal pieces and concrete before turning to aluminum cans.  Over the next 18 years, Milkovisch covered the entire house in flattened beer cans.  Over 50,000 beer cans.  Talk about drinking dedication.

“He didn’t think anybody would ever be interested in it. He just loved drinking his beer and just loved being outside and cutting up the beer cans.”
