Enjoyed my experience!! Be sure to read prior to purchase. I’ve been wanting to experience the beer house for yrs however my fiancé was expecting more being he didn’t look into the where we were going prior to arrival. The house is not very big but there’s plenty of handmade details and things for the kids to read as any museum. The entire experience takes no more than 15-30mins or less.

Very cool experience, the host was nice and knowledgeable. The house has a strong odor, smelled like a basement or cellar. Luckily for us it was a quick tour, took all of 7-10 minutes.

About Beer Can House

After retiring from his upholstering job at the Southern Pacific Railroad, John Milkovisch spent his free time building structures around his house and drinking beers with his wife Mary. But when he ran out of space for building, he decided to use up his extra beer cans to create a shiny siding for his structures and his house. He began in 1968, and within 20 years he had completely covered his property with an estimated 50,000 aluminum and glass cans. The result was both fashionable and functional, with swaying garlands tinkling in the breeze, strings of cans adding a luster to all surfaces of the house, and the protective weight of the cans even helping cut the house’s energy costs. But you can’t have a house this striking and not get noticed. So pretty soon people began making trips to see this can-covered house, and in 2007, it was moved into the Orange Show Center for Visionary Art. Now guests can peer inside the house and examine the structures without getting chased by the owner's beer can-covered dog. The house’s guided tours also feature a documentary that covers the history of the project since its inception forty years ago.
