I pick up aluminum cans whenever I am out and about. I do alot of bicycling and scan the sides of the road for cans. I end up with bags of em not only doing a few miles some times. Also, I live right on the coast and was walking my dog through the sand dunes and saw a can so I picked it up by the bottom. It was heavy and I thought it was full of sand but when I turned it over, yea! a unopened can of budweiser!

Think of it as Mother Nature giving you a cold one for picking up litter for keeping the earth clean =)

I used to go out on a bike quite a bit looking for cans. I always came home with a garbage bag full.

Are you throwing that out?

quite a few years ago a friend and I were scrappin, we were both out of work and figured we needed to do something more than darts. So we filled up a cooler of beer and started to pick up junk. We loaded up the truck with scrap on the way my friend found a full tecate can of beer, we put it on ice as a back up beer. Bad idea not good very skunky

I hope you had more than one back-up.

There's no way I'd drink it. No telling how long it's been sitting out.

I did drink it, a little foamy, but pretty good. Usually I go for dark beer but I figured somebody wanted me to drink a bud.

It definitely had been sitting out for a while as the red on the can was faded from the sun on one side. Must be all the chemicals they put in the can lining that kept it good, I usually drink out of glass bottles.
