South Australian man collects 30,000 VB cans – to create Australia’s biggest ‘beer pit’


We didn’t think we could top last week’s VB carton caped crusader, but a man from Moonta on the Yorke Peninsula has just been outed as ‘VB’s biggest fan’ – literally.

Revealed in a series of YouTube videos found by Yahoo7, the lager lover has been collecting his favourite tinnies for the last 15 years to create ‘The VB Shed’.

In one video, the man, cigarette in mouth, seems to be swimming through the sea of green cans, estimated at around 30,000, before asking: “How do I get out of here?”

As the woman behind the camera says: “One man, tens of thousands of VB cans, this is it. Some guys call it the ultimate beer pit and they’re pretty correct in saying that.”

No words.
