I have been quiet on this blog since May 29, 2018……I have pent up things to say about beer and more. I am in Kenedy Texas…..Yes, Kenedy with one “n”…..it is a Texas thing, don’t fight it.
Last night my workmate and I pulled into a little place in Kenedy, Texas called 5D Grill and Lounge. Simple but good food and a friendly wait staff. They are a small chain with locations in oilfield towns like Kenedy, Monahans, TX, Carrizo Springs, TX, Yorktown, TX, and soon in La Vernia, TX. I decided I needed a beer last night and was pleasantly surprised. They had Elysian Space Dust IPA in a bottle. I had to say wow! It was wonderful “…..so I had another for dessert”….Thanks Kris Kristofferson for the line and Johnny Cash and Ray Price for making it famous.
Elysian Space Dust – Wow. Chinook hops up front and later on for bitterness and dry hopped with Citra and Amarillo hops. Some of my favorite hops that I use at home. ABV was enough to cut it off after two bottles, 8.2% ABV. Not overly hoppy at 73 IBU’s but it was a great blend and my palate was happy! I am actually a bit surprised that a beer like this would wind up out in a “kinda” remote location and a town 3200 people. It just shows that the buyer must know good beer!
Link to locator…..yes they serve it all over Houston. Plug your zip code in to see if you get lucky!
In the near future I will post a wine making adventure. Wild Mustang grapes form the woods around Kingwood, TX
Drink Local and Drink Responsibly.
