How many other beer can houses will you ever see? If you are a fan of kitschy folk art, like beer, or simply have a good sense of humor, this little house will be a delightful visit.

Just pulled up outside the house to have a look, didn't have time to actually visit. Maybe next time but there is a small charge.

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
