Beer Can House - Review

The USA is known for all things bizarre and the Beer Can House lives up to this reputation. This very unusual weekend attraction has been created by the All- American John Milkovisch. The creation began 1968 and has now become a popular tourist attraction. The man loves his beer and has recycled over 50000 cans of beer to create this mammoth monument.

The beer can house is exactly what it says on the cover; a house made entirely out of beer cans on the foundation of scrap metal and concrete. This absurd and yet intriguing construction is worth a see.

The retired upholsterer has created quite the spectacle and if you want to see something eclectic and unlike anything else be sure to visit this attraction. Not only is it an oddity, it also inspires one to think about recycling.

Beer Can House, Houston Reviews

  • I had heard about this place many times over the years growing up in the Houston area. I finally took the time to check it out. It was well worth the little time it took to view the house! Quirky fun!

  • 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!

  • Wonderful art installation. Great back story. Learned about this on the Atlas Obscura.
