You could walk by Rice University's chemistry building a thousand times and never spot the secret in the basement! Valhalla, a nonprofit bar that serves the cheapest beers in the city, is celebrating 50 years!

HOUSTON, Texas -- Valhalla, which was founded by graduate students in 1971, is a bar located beneath the chemistry building on the campus of Rice University in Houston, Texas.

It's known for cheap beer and quirky traditions, but its purpose extends well beyond a cold beverage.

The goal of Valhalla is to offer the Rice community a place to network, interact, share ideas and come together.

Plus, find out why the staff at Valhalla purposely leaves negative reviews on the bar's Yelp and Google pages!
