A Visit to Houston’s Beer Can House

I spent the last four or so days riding around in a convertible, skin drinking in exquisite sunlight, on my very first trip to Houston, Texas. Coming back to the grey skys of Buffalo was no easy feat, but I at least have my memories of Mexican karaoke, dancing and pure bliss to keep me warm. One of the most fascinating structures I visited was The Beer Can House, made of over 50,000 beer cans (as estimated by Ripley’s Believe It or Not). Created by John Milkovisch, who began work on the house in 1968, the Beer Can House is a Houston landmark and one I most definitely recommend visiting. In regards to his work, Milkovisch said it best; “Some people say this is sculpture but I didn’t go to no expensive school to get these crazy notions.”
