Loveland, Colorado: Beer Can Beaver (Gone)

Built in 2017 from 3,000 beer cans (and a few soft drinks) - 8 ft. tall. Denver rejected the sculpture, so it was adopted by a beaver-themed Loveland microbrewery in 2018.

Big Beaver Brewing Co. On the north side of US Hwy 34/W. Eisenhower Blvd, a quarter-mile west of Wilson Ave. and just east of the reservoir. The beaver stands outside the back side of the building, not visible from the street.
Feb. 2020: Reported destroyed by weather.

Beer Can Beaver Destroyed

Big Beaver Brewery is under new management. The new owner stated that the beaver was taken out by a huge gust of wind and smashed against the outer wall. It happened around February 2020. No idea if said critter was intoxicated.

Eight Foot Beaver Made of Beer Cans

Pah Weech is a public art collaboration; over 1,000 people worked to complete her. She is an eight-foot-high sculpture made of over 3,000 beer cans.

[KatiLyn VanNosdall, 10/17/2018]

Pah Weech -- the Uncompahgre Ute word for beaver -- was built during the 2017 Riverfest in Denver out of old beer cans salvaged from the river (and new beer cans emptied during Riverfest). Denver said it was too dangerous for permanent display in one of its parks, so the sculpture was adopted by a beaver-themed Loveland microbrewery in 2018.
