This wasn't open when we visited, but it is an amazing local legend. I've heard of this for years, and was glad to finally visit. The beer can ends that are made into wind chimes along the front of the house make a beautiful sound! The entire house is covered in flattened beer cans, with cans used in the whole landscaping as well. The striking thing for me was the way this neighborhood is changing. They are buying up all the little shotgun shacks that give the area character, and building behemoth townhouses and condos all around. It is really sad to see it all go the way of suburbia. But the Beer Can House is here to stay! Only open on weekends, so next time we will plan better.
Totally different than anything you visited before!! If you have time, you should check it out. John Milkovisch, an Austrian immigrant, made this house. He loved cheap beer!!! And he found a use for it!! Awesome job John!! Hats off to John’s kids!! They kept the house for public display instead of selling it for good amount of money. I really appreciate it. For $5 you can go inside the house. If you like you can donate more!
This beer can house is a hidden treasure of Houston and you can miss it in the quick blink of an eye. It has so much history not only on the outside but as well as the inside about the house and it's creator!
Ok beer can house. Drink a beer can put on house. Art or sheer genius. You decide.
Like finding a rare piece of art in the least expected place. Very original and creative!
