Visitor Tips and News About Beer Can Yard
I must admit this yard has a lot of beer cans! We enjoyed checking out the yard with its nearly all-matching brand of beer (We did find strings of cans from a different label; same color scheme though). Enjoyed that some cans remained intact while others were cut to look like lanterns. But what caught us off-guard was the sound! It was only slightly breezy when we visited, but there was a very distinct wind-chime melody. Quite nice I'll add![Tammy Norton, 01/26/2014]
So unexpected. Definitely worth stopping by. Picture doesn't do it justice.[Brittany, 09/10/2012]
