Buffalo Bayou Brewing is by far one of the most adventurous breweries in Houston. Brewing up beers like Gingerbread Stout, their tribute to BBQ beer Smoke on the Bayou and many more, all the beverages include some sort of tribute to various Houston points of pride, be it anything from the date the city was founded to the city's prestigipus Rice University. Show up Saturday afternoons for tours, commemorative pint glasses and of course, drink tickets! Visitors are encouraged to bring their own food and hang out during the open house and soak up the Bayou as much as possible!
In a city like Houston where everyone spends most of the day driving, it's no wonder some innovative artists would think to turn cars into art. At the Art Car Museum, also known as the "Garage Mahal," you can see these crazy pieces on display. This unusual museum will delight visitors of all ages with cars transformed into the likes of a giant evil Easter Bunny or a gold Chevy covered in stuffed alligators called the "Swamp Mutha."

In 1979 retired upholsterer, John Milkovish, started hanging ceiling attachments, patching fences and tacking the sides of his house with empty aluminum beer cans. Unbelievable? The staff of Ripley's Believe It Or Not thought so as well and featured the house on the show. Other interesting characteristics added over time are the success ladder to the stars, the marvelous marbles address sign and the bucket faucet connections. It is definitely an interesting site to behold. Simply drive or walk by and have a look.
