Best Icehouse - 2013
West Alabama Ice House
Now that Shiner has landed nationwide, the icehouse may be the last grand secret the rest of the country hasn't wrested from Texas. And no establishment better encapsulates the icehouse ideal than West Alabama. A staple of the Alabama stretch, West Alabama Ice House provides all you might need: a sprawling patio, an open basketball hoop, bottomless beer and a glut of the sweetest half-mangy dogs to keep you company. Even when a late-spring storm whips apart the tarps-cum-windows, there are few places more preferable to have a Shiner in the one state it's meant to be drunk.
