Beer Can House

The Beer Can House began in 1968, born from homeowner John Milkovisch’s aversion to mowing the lawn. Instead of grass, he envisioned a landscape of metal and mirth, transforming his property into a spectacular folk art installation. Over 18 years, Milkovisch adorned his home with over 50,000 beer cans, bottles, and brewery offcuts, turning a mundane chore into a glittering artistic legacy.

Milkovisch’s property is a testament to inventive reuse, featuring beer can cladding, trim, and decorations. The shimmering facade, coupled with the tinkling sounds of beer can wind chimes, offers a sensory experience unlike like any other.

This peculiar landmark continues to attract curiosity and admiration, long after Milkovisch’s passing in 1988. Its enduring appeal lies in its ability to blend eccentricity with sustainability, capturing the imagination of visitors from around the world.
