George (Owner/Manager) let us try the new Brunette Bombshell that was bourbon barrel aged - yummy and my favorite! We really enjoyed hanging out here for part of our afternoon and plan to return the next time we are in the Valley - good beer and good times.
Just a short drive to the north from 5x5 Brewing Company is Big River Brewery in Pharr. We really enjoyed our visit to Big River last year and decided a repeat trip was in the cards today.
Last year we had two seasonal favorites at Big River Brewery - the Mi Abuelita (Milk Stout with chocloate on the rim and toasted marshmellow) and the Pink Elephant (a Cranberry Saison) - this year we had them again!
Maybe next time I'll try one of their IPA's...
If you ever get down to the Rio Grande Valley - we highly recommend visiting both of these breweries, cheers!
