Waterfront beer experience at Lake Houston Brewery

#HoustonBeerMonth Guest Submission from Jason Ducey

When reviewing beers, it can sometimes be difficult to separate the experience from the beer.  Sometimes in the right surrounding a beer you once passed on could be short lived favorite.  Lake Houston Brewery located in Huffman Texas eliminates all the negative with solid beers and an outdoor setup made for the weekend. You would have a hard time not enjoying yourself.

First the beer. I fell for a West Coast IPA they call “LFG”. As much as I love hazy IPAs, it’s always a treat to have what now seems like an original. This balanced hop-forward classic will get you feeling it with it’s strong citrus notes from beginning to end proving why it will be a mainstay in the taproom.

The brewery itself is what really got my attention.  Formally a restaurant known as The Cedar they have a large indoor area that is nothing in comparison to what you will see outside. The elevated stage for live music is positioned towards the brewery and allows beer enthusiasts to enjoy a perfect view of Lake Houston. After visiting most every brewery in the region, I always admired groups that were able to visit a brewery via bicycle.  Cycling has never been my forte.  Boating on the other hand is one of my favorite leisure activities. With several places to dock your boat or jet ski, visiting Lake Houston Brewery is a must for water enthusiasts and beer enthusiasts alike.

    Out of this world micheladas w/Space City Snax

    When life gives you limes, make micheladas! The word “michelada” is a Spanish portmanteau that combines “chela” (slang term for beer) with “ada” for “helada,” meaning cold, and “mi” for mine — basically “my cold beer”. I used to not be a fan of micheladas until I tried a michelada made with mix from Space City

    Middie Back Amber Ale from Elder Son Brewery in the Heights

    In my personal opinion, I feel Houston has been lacking in American amber style beer options. What was once a booming style has been dwindled down to just a small handful of breweries offering a solid year round amble ale. I found what is definitely a contender for my favorite amber in Middie Back from Elder Son Brewing.
