The storefront has changed. Don't look for the yellow sign or you'll never find it.

Before its pretty-fication, Ye Ol' Watering Hole included a museum entrance awning, lit sign, and outer wall mural, proudly proclaiming its curatorial contents. We hope at least you saw some cans inside....

Sign for Beer Can Museum.

Beer Can Museum

A local watering hole -- called "Ye Olde Watering Hole," nestled as it is in Colonial New England -- is lined floor to ceiling with nearly every beer can ever manufactured. There is no admission fee, though you might want to have a beer. It's cheap here.

The bar is also a popular hangout for the locals, who run the gamut from sanitary engineers to Smith college students to heroin-addicted local musicians.
