Twain’s is happy to welcome Mike Castagno as our new Head Brewer.
5.1% ABV 31 IBUs Tasting notes: Cocoa, chili peppers, and roast malt upfront with a medium hot burn on the finish. We paired up with Hotlanta Peppers out of Atlanta, GA to make this chili stout. We used a blend of pepper flakes that consists of several varieties of habanero & jalapeño peppers as well as the red devil’s tongue. Suprisingly refreshing for a chili stout in the summer.
6.1% ABV 55 IBUs Tasting notes: mixture of tropical fruit, citrus and a hint of pine from the hop aromas with a clean supportive malt breadiness Our Adventure in Southern Hemisphere hops brings us to this IPA using heaps of Pacifica, Pacific Jade, Wai-iti, AU Summer and AU Galaxy. If you enjoy the New World hops, you’ll be keen on this hoppy pale ale. Kia ora mate!
5.6% ABV 22 IBUs Tasting notes: Yeast character of bubblegum, pear, and peach with toasty, biscuit, and caramel malt notes. Assistant Brewer Sean Miller took the reigns on this beer. A great everyday beer and an excellent “Intro to Belgian Beer” product.
6.8% ABV 45 IBUs Tasting notes:High citrus flavors of orange, tangerine, mandarin, grapefruit & a hint of lemon. Creamy mouthful, not heavy or filling. Bready & biscuity malt character supports the moderate bitterness. This unfiltered IPA is a hybrid of the West Coast IPA & the New England IPA. Hops: Manderina Barvaria, Amarillo, Galaxy, Cascade, Sorachi Ace
5.9% ABV 21 IBUs Tasting Notes: Toasty malt, baking bread and pale bread crust; hint of floral hops to round out the beer. Ourspring edition of our “Alternative Facts Series”, this golden Marzen is the perfect beer to hasten that spring feeling. The beer is malty but well balanced, clean and dry on the finish. We took our popular Oktoberfest recipe and lighten the malt and raised the continental hops to make this more warm weather friendly. Prost!
Tasting Notes: Lightly toasted bread, biscuits; Light esters of peach and red pear;
This style is an everyday drinking beer for the monks inside the monasteries. Very approachable; this is a great beer to start with in developing a love for Belgian-style beers. Not too strong or heavy; it still delivers a good bit of flavor on the finish.
5.5%ABV 40 IBU
Tasting notes: Aromas of dark chocolate and caramel espresso with flavors of roast, toast and crackers. This smooth stout is quite approachable and continuously gets better as it warms up.
German Pilsner Ale, 5.2% abv
Notes: Floral hop bouquet, graham cracker, sweet malt, smooth finish
Our second installment of the “Alternative Facts Series” is a German Pilsner brewed with ale yeast. Keeping that in mind, we used a few tricks to mimic lager fermentation and then lagered this beer for over 3 weeks. Crisp, semi-dry and easy to drink in hot weather.
Notes:Aromas of tea and honey, earthy hop flavor with biscuit, water cracker and caramel malt notes
One of our brewer’s favorite beers and a reemerging style among craft beer fans, this ESB was a heavily awarded beer in our brewer’s homebrew career. Easy to drink and very food friendly, try it with the Cod & Chips.
