  1. Constructed in 1969, the World's Largest Six Pack belongs to the City Brewery in La Crosse, Wisconsin. According to the sign in front of the six pack, the six "beers" contain a total of 22,220 barrels of beer, which is 688,200 gallons. This is enough to fill 7,340,796 cans. Also, placed end-to-end, these beer cans would run 565 miles long. Even more amazing, the World's Largest Six Pack would provide a single person a six pack daily for 3,351 years. Wow!

  2. I am a proud grandson of the designer of this monument. It used to be painted, not a banner over it. Posted by: Anonymous on Mar 02, 2012 (0) (0)

  5. hmm.....if you can read at the 2nd grade level, it says there are 7,340,796 cans of beer in the 6 silos. placed end to end, they run 565 miles. Posted by: Anonymous on Jan 08, 2011 (0) (0)
  6. There is no way that those 6 buildings end to end would be 565 miles long. Each can is obviously less than a mile long, so end to end, the grand toltal would have to be less than 6 miles. I think you may have yards confused with miles. However, still impressive. Posted by: Anonymous on Dec 02, 2010 (0) (1)
  7. The World's Largest Six is La Crosse's claim to fame. Beer is the city's lifeblood, which is evident every weekend on 3rd Street--the main bar area of its downtown. Posted by: Anonymous on Nov 17, 2008 (0) (1)

This is the tagline for the City Brewery in La Crosse. Is it not ironic that it is displayed right next to the World's Largest Six Pack?
