Castelo Adventures: crawfish & beer

I am absolutely loving the warm weather we've been having. However, as much as I am enjoying it, I'm a little frightened to what the summer season will bring. YIKES! In the meantime, I'll take this 80 degree weather and bask in the sunshine!

We tried something new this weekend. Crawfish. Now, I've had crawfish before but not the "twist-pop off-the-head" kind. My prior crawfish experiences were nicely placed in my jambalaya. All ready to eat. Still...I was looking forward to crack open some shells!

This boil has been on the books for a few weeks now. It was at a local brewery, Independence Brewing Co., located in south Austin. It was our first time going to this brewery as well. Bonus: it is family included! :)

We each got couple of pounds of crawfish...each pound included corn and a potato {my favorite}. They also had beer and water. 

We weren't too sure if M was going to like the crawfish. He started off with eating corn and then after seeing everyone dig into the crawfish he decided to try it...and loved it! He loves fish, shrimp and other seafood so I knew he would like this as well. {he even tried shark while we were in Puerto Rico last year}

silly boy
We had such a great time. It was a hot spring day with just enough breeze...perfect for the boil. We will definitely be going back to check out the brewery...when there isn't such a large crowd. 

It's crawfish season! Have you been to a boil or had one of your own? What do you like to season yours with? Let me know in the comments below!
