Twain’s is happy to welcome Mike Castagno as our new Head Brewer.
Our crushable UK-style beer is similar to an American Pale Ale in character but made with British ingredients. This is an excellent beer for the unbearable heat of summers in metro Atlanta. Named after the debut album of Linkin Park; their creative take on the rock music scene the past 17 years has been a strong influence on our brewer.Hops: East Kent Golding, Brambling Cross, Horizon
5.6% abv, 42 IBUs
We took cold brewed “honey process” Nicaraguan coffee from local cafe JavaVino and made this Coffee Stout. Caramel, milk chocolate, and vanilla characters come through from the coffee and its influence on the beer.
Notes: Intense resin, Tasting Notes: Papaya, Mango, Resin, Grapefruit, Orange, bitter & crisp finish, hazy
This new IPA is a clash between West Coast-Style pine, grapefruit and bitter focused IPAs and East Coast-Style hazy, creamy and tropical fruit juice focused IPAs. Hops: Galaxy, Eukanot, Jarrylo, Idaho 7
6.7%ABV 70 IBU
Scottish Export (80/-)
Notes: Mahogony color with ruby highlights; medium light body; caramel, toffee, hint of butterscotch; Biscuit, shortbread, light toasted malt; tea-like earthiness
This Scottish Ale was brewed with David Byer as the Brewer’s Choice Award from the 2017 Peach State Brew Off homebrew competition. The beer is a slightly stronger version of an everyday Scottish Ale (not the same as Scotch Ale). Despite its complex malt profile this beer is very easy to drink..
Notes: Baking bread, Bartlett pear, yellow apple, mandarin, coriander, cardamom, pink peppercorn
Our triple was run through a three-step mash and is highly carbonated to keep the body lighter & the finish semi dry.
All the fruit & spice character comes from our Belgian yeast
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.
Belgian Wit, 5.5% abv
Notes: Orange, coriander, grainy, creamy, slight tartness on the finish
Our first batch of Witbier is dedicated to the endless patience of our brewer’s wife. Her favorite beer genre is wheat beer and Wit is a great warm weather option. Named after the infamous question in Philadelphia – when you order a cheesesteak you’ll be asked “Wit or Witout?”.
11th Hour APA, 5.5%
This American Pale Ale was our head brewer’s flagship beer as a homebrewer. Light toasty malt backs a bright hop character full of tangerine, mango and pineapple with hints of grapefruit. Is it juicy? Yes, yes it is.
My Girl Belgian Blonde, 6.5%
This Belgian Blonde is dedicated to our brewer’s 3-year old daughter and her favorite song by The Temptations. The beer pours light gold in color with a pale white creamy head. The initial burst of fruit esters are reminiscent of pears and stone fruit with a hint of spicy, pepper on the finish. Careful, this beer is much stronger than it seems and may sneak up on you!
