Very Interesting!
Sep 2020
This is an unusual house. Clearly the man liked Beer! It is definitely different. It was unintentionally created by John Milkovisch over a period of years after his retirement as an upholsterer for the Southern Pacific Railroad. He began with constructing a patio, hating waste, and things progressed from there. Be sure to read his history and then stop by and see for yourself what he accomplished before his death and the usefulness of it.

I love quirky

So loving quirky, we plugged address into GPS as we headed out of town and had a look

It was closed due to being a week day which we knew but we still got a good view from the outside.

Interesting structure.

Unique Houston Treasure

Take the time and spend the $5 to go inside to learn more about the Beer Can House. The money goes to the upkeep of it and we all want to see it continue. The store inside is about how it got started and other unique homes in the US.

Beer anyone
Aug 2020
No, there is no beer served here. But who can resist seeing a house made of beer cans. This place a different, since it's not everyday you see a beer can house. Plan on spending no more than 30 minutes. If you are looking for quirky things to do, this is on the list.

Easy to get there, an available parking place was available right in front of it. I must admit, it's quite a piece of art.

An old favorite showpiece
Dec 2019
I first went to 222 Malone in 1969, when the house was not surrounded by 3-storey cubist urban hip monstrosities. It had side yard and airspace and trees. It became a favorite place to show visitors to Houston over the next generation. I've been inside the house, the back yard, the garage, and countless times just soaking it up from the front. As I get older & weirder, I imagine doing similar things to my home :)
I've shot a little light guerilla rope-play there, mostly at night, sometimes in high sun, and nobody I've taken there has failed to have a good time. Go see it while it still stands, before it is finally taken over by the forces of 'progress' ~

Just the right amount of quirky!

This little house is really an experience. Fun for the kids too! From beer can labels to pop-top tabs, nothing was spared in this creative piece of art.

So random and weird
Dec 2019
With not much seeming to do in Houston we decided to check out the beer can house. This was completely random house in a regular suburban street made of beer cans. I wouldn’t make a special trip there but we had some free time to kill so it was good for 10 minutes of laughs at the randomness of it.

Strange fun
Nov 2019
Texas has no zoning laws and a tourist attraction is born. At $10 a piece and a 30 minutes look around the house. I got my money's worth. Friendly staff and a clean bathroom too.
