Fort Worth, Texas: Beer Can Yard (Gone)

Louis Torres began stringing empty beer cans from the trees in his back yard in 2008. There were thousands of cans. He accepted donations, full or empty, with a preference for Miller Lite and Milwaukee's Best Light.
Northwest edge of the city. I-30 exit 12A. Drive north on University Drive for about two miles. Turn right onto White Settlement Rd. Make third right onto Currie St (just past the car dealership). The yard will be a block south, on the right. Private property, visible from street.
July 2016: Reported gone.

Beer Can Yard

This house is no longer there. It has been torn down.

The former owner is moving to another house in a different town. He says he will turn his new property into a Beer Can Yard.

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!

So unexpected. Definitely worth stopping by. Picture doesn't do it justice.
