1. Brews Brothers 2404 Strand St, Galveston, TX 77550

Found in the Galveston Historical District, this brewpub is reliably filled with jolly patrons, likely thanks to the seemingly constant stream of new beers to try. They've also got a food menu with some huge burgers to help soak up the suds.

2. Yaga's Café 2314 Strand St, Galveston, TX 77550

A family-friendly restaurant all week, Yaga's transforms into a live music-playin’, drink-slingin’ good time come Friday and Saturday night.

3. O'Malley's Stage Door Pub 2022 Post Office St, Galveston, TX 77550

Head to O'Malley's for drinks and eats on the cheap -- like a Frito Pie Supreme paired with a frosty Guinness.

4. Old Quarter Acoustic Café 413 20th St, Galveston, TX 77550

The Old Quarter Acoustic Cafe is a one-of-a-kind live music bar where a lame cover song may very well get you booed right out the back door. The atmosphere's dim and the drink selection isn't exactly expansive, but that (plus the cheap beer) is part of the charm.

5. Murphy's Irish Pub 213 22nd St, Galveston, TX 77550

Murphy's is a great place to play some games (darts, pool, and foosball) while you get down on something from their large beer selection.

6. Tremont House Rooftop Bar 2300 Mechanic St, Galveston, TX 77550

Though the drink prices may be a little higher than usual, you'll be grateful for the elevation of the rest of the bar once you take in the views from the top of the Tremont House Hotel.

7. Float Pool & Patio Bar 2828 Seawall Blvd, Galveston, TX 77550

Just a block from the Gulf of Mexico, Float’s two-story pool deck offers views of both the beach AND its monthly Summer bikini contests -- plus drinks like the "Wake Me Up" -- a Red Bull- and liquor-based concoction that you shotgun through a hole in the bottle of the can.

8. Beerfoot Beach Bar 2816 Avenue R 1/2, Galveston, TX 77550

Whether you want to enter your own suds into competition or would rather enjoy something from their wide selection of draft and bottled craft beer, head to this Seawall brewpub to enjoy some brew-fueled good times.

9. The Spot 3204 Seawall Blvd, Galveston, TX 77550

The Spot has expanded from a simple burger joint to become a party complex on Seawall Blvd -- check out tequila bar The Squeeze, the self-explanatory Rum Shack, the also rum-happy Tiki Bar, and their newest addition, Side Yard, a casual backyard-themed bar.

10. H2o Pool & Bar 5222 Seawall Blvd, Galveston, TX 77551

Booze flows freely -- for the right (fairly high) price -- at this "Ultra Lounge" located at the San Luis Resort. Grab a cabana and some cocktails if you've got some cash to burn.

11. The Poop Deck 2928 Seawall Blvd, Galveston, TX 77550

With cheap beer, ocean views, and a huge deck for you to enjoy, The Poop Deck is a must-visit on your Galveston Seawall bucket list.
