70,000 cans of beer on the wall....

24 cans of beer a day times eight years! What does that get you? This guy and 800

Here’s to you, Mr. Can'tfindhiswaytothetrashcan guy!

It seems one Ogden, Utah, man was a little more than a casual fan of the occasional cold one after work.

Last year, Century 21 property manager Ryan Froerer — acting on a tip from a real estate agent — went out to check on a townhouse, but when he got therem he realized he’d missed the party.

KSL-TV reports that Froerer was greeted by a barrage of beer cans — tens of thousands of them — piled high on the floor of the otherwise abandoned abode.

"As we approached the door, there were beer boxes, all the way up to the ceiling,” Froerer said. "It's just unbelievable that a human being could live like that."

But "live like that" someone had, and for quite some time.

Froerer snapped a few pictures of the boozy metallic mountain and e-mailed them to friends, but soon they were circulating among beer fans everywhere.

Luckily for Froerer, once the townhouse was de-brewskified, it was clean enough to lease out again. The estimated 70,000 cans (that amounts to 24 beers a day for the beer dude's eight-year stay) were recycled for $800.
