What’s more interesting than collecting beer bottle tops? The artwork that was created from them! There is a place you need to go check out in Lamar Texas called Pops Tavern & Cafe. Known by the locals as "Pops Place".
It has some really cool Fish Art and mural wall creations on display. All of their masterpieces are made out of old beer bottle tops collected at the establishment's bar and grill over the years, which you can see for yourself when visiting this unique spot across the bridge from Rockport Texas.
We love going to "Pop's Place" for their great food, and ice-cold beer. It's a short drive across the bridge but well worth it. The first thing you'll notice besides all the friendly faces is its beautiful one-of-a-kind artwork.
The art projects were done by the owners of Pops before hurricane Harvey caused significant damage to the building. Luckily the priceless artworks were untouched or damaged in the storm.
The artist behind these magnificent pieces is a true master of their craft. Each fish bottle top was carefully selected and placed with perfect precision to create these large, one-of-a-kind beautiful custom art designs that are wonderfully displayed on the walls at Pop's Place.

Here is a photo of the Texas Flag Mural in their bathroom.
The artist's hand is very evident in this piece. It looks like they took their time selecting bottle tops and carefully placing them where they looked pleasing to the eye.
How many bottles of beer do you think it took to make these fabulous works of art? I've actually tried to count all the caps but usually get distracted before I hit 100. These are truly one-of-a-kind art pieces. I would love to have them on my wall but they are not for sale. The only way to get a good idea is to go and check them out yourself. You won't be disappointed.
