Did you see this one in the news? I read about this a few days ago and something stuck in the back of my brain…

It seems one Ogden, Utah, man was a little more than a casual fan of the occasional cold one after work.
Last year, a property manager Ryan Froerer went out to check on a townhouse, but when he got there 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. 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.
I figured out what it was: that guy was loyal to his brand.
