My savage neighbor about two blocks down is always chucking empties into the azalea and I chase after them often. After a few weeks off I finally went burrowing under the azalea and what have we here amongst the redeemable container weight but Tecate Light.
Turns out I got two; photographed the one with the ruined top before I realized the second one was there. Due to the lack of fizz and therefore feeling that the can was less than full, I must’ve mistaken the damaged one for an empty and only known at first that I had the one intact can but switched them when I arrived … uhh … at the park.
Anyhow, that’s like, what, 23 since I’ve been counting. Road beers!
In related news, I also acquired a large plastic can of protein powder a few years ago, yknow, with all the lifting I do, but have been trepidatious about trying it. Turns out it’s still good. Roadtein!
Holy shit, I just was wandering with Negrito around SJSU, looking for containers to recycle, when wouldn’t you know it I happened by chance across the biggest stash of roadbeers that I ever found: 7 Pyramid Haywire Hefeweizens (or in Santa Cruz, heffenwisen) plus an eighth of something I forgot.
They’d been put out in the office wastebasket outside the door to a department of the university that will go unnamed. I immediately shared a few with the first lady who walked by so you know I’m not greedy.
This is the biggest stash I’ve ever found in one shot, and brings me up towards the 20 mark of total roadbeers found since I’ve been counting!
I tried to share the good news by finding some free beer-finders’ forum but all I found was http://freebeer.org. But these louies don’t know jack about free beer! Share your free beer story in a comment below!
UPDATE: I think it’s called Haywire Hefeweizen because they fucked it up. It’s gross, no head whatsoever. Maybe the department that shall not be named left it out in the sun or something.
UPDATE: OH I GET IT it’s someone’s homebrew. Indeed.
2-Strats reports on his snacking only to get interrupted by Stretch with a report of not just his recycling but the recovery of a rare stray intact beer! Has this happened to you lately? Hit up a comment with your story! Personally I’m at 3 within twelve months. Can you top that??
