This is a quirky but fun place to visit. Won't take very long, but you'll gain insight into what a man with an odd hobby can do over a lifetime of beer-drinking!

I have been going by this house since the 1970's. Roznoski's Hamburger place is nearby! It is truly an amazing house!

For $5 you can’t go wrong! This cute, quirky house has a great story and it worth a quick stop. We had a tour round which was quick and informative and is certainly a place which makes your heart smile!

Didn't go on a tour but it was very fun to experience the Beer Can House. Everything is made out of beer cans; the fences, the sidewalk, the mailbox, the curtains. Was watching a baseball game a few months later and it was featured as...More

Hours vary. It is worth it to drive by any time even if it is not open and get out of your car and take a look from the street. Combine this stop with a nearby stop to see Howard Hughes' grave at the Glenwood Cemetery... More
