Twain’s continues its tradition of bringing you Great Beer in 2013.
2013 harkens in a new era here at Twain’s Billiards & Tap. Chase Medlin takes over as Twain’s Head Brewer as we welcome Chicagoan Brad Davis to the family here at Twain’s. You can expect some of the beers we have been perfecting during the last year to stay in our rotation, but always be on the lookout for something new! We have already introduced a few that have really been crowd pleasers, like the River Sunset Amber or Criminal Sin IPA, so you should definitely come by to see whats on tap.
You can also look forward to some more collaboration ales. 2012 gave us awesome opportunities to work with some great people to make some delicious beer, and we don’t aim to stop, it is one way of doing our part to strengthen the craft beer community, and one we truly enjoy.
Come on down and say hello to the guys making all that great beer. Cheers.
