Utah Man Not a Beer Snob

If you drink Coors Lite, you probably do have to drink 24 beers a day just to catch a buzz. It has been a long, long while since I've had the pleasure of slurping a Coors Lite, but I recall it resembling recycled beer, i.e. beer that someone already drank once. Ahem.

70,000 Beer Cans Found in Ogden Townhouse
Ryan Froerer, Century 21: “Said it was the sickest thing he's ever seen. Just unimaginable that someone could live in that.”

He couldn't even open the front door. It was blocked from inside.
“There was beer cans I would say probably this high up on the door.”

The realtor had forewarned him about the smell. “He poked his head in, the smell was so awful he couldn't go in. ”... “As we approached the door, there were beer boxes, all the way up to the ceiling.”

Inside, he took just a few snapshots to document the scene. Beer cans by the tens of thousands. Mountains of cans burying the furniture. The water and heat were shut off, apparently on purpose by the tenant, who evidently drank Coors Light beer exclusively for the eight years he lived there...

The cans were recycled for 800 dollars, an estimated 70,000 cans: 24 beers a day for 8 years.
