A few words About us
Built in 1928 on a dirt road on the outskirts of town, the West Alabama Ice House is a true Texas ice house. Before the days of air conditioning and refrigeration, people in the south would gather at their local watering hole to hang out with neighbors and drink ice cold beverages. This tradition continues today with a great selection of craft beers, ciders, seltzers, sours, and sodas.
In 1985, Jerry Markantonis, a Greek immigrant from the island of Kefalonia, acquired the West Alabama Ice House. His son, Petros (Pete), still maintains and runs the bar to this day. The Markantonis family tradition continues with two of Pete's daughters, who also work there.
