Bottle Cap Alley

Lots of beer.

Bottle Cap Alley

Bottle Cap Alley is located on the northern edge of the Texas A&M campus. The alley entrance is on the north side of Hwy 60/University Dr, midway between College Main and Boyett. It's a short alley between the Dry Bean and Dixie Chicken paved with used beer bottle caps. The alley receives donations from the surrounding bars and people who collect caps solely for the purpose of "paving" it. Shiner Beer, a local Texas beer, just donated 380,000 caps to the alley.
