Serpentine Solitude

13% ABV 15 IBUs

Color: Light Brown, a bit hazy./ Finish: Raisin, dried fruits, sherry, bourbon, caramel, vanilla, hints of oaks.

This is 2017’s Hell For Society Quad aged in a 3rd use Willet Bourbon Barrel. The 3rd use imparts more of a neutral aging characteristic with hints of bourbon & oak rather than being overpowering. This beer is complex and will get more enjoyable if you let it warm a bit. together to make for a pleasant, smooth experience.

Sunken Treasure

7.0% ABV 20 IBUs

Color: Burnt Orange, Hazy, Dense ivory head/ Finish: Light but complex, sweet malts, vanilla, with hints of tropical fruit and brett funk

We took some of our Spring Forward Marzen and stowed it away in a Flor de Cana Rum Barrel with Brett Anomalus for 6 months.

Not Brett K

9.0% ABV 70 IBUs

Color: Deep gold, good clarity, pillowy off-white head/ Finish: Fragent floral with sublte funky brett, tropical hops and a gentle warmth/ Hops: Centennial, Cascade, Palisade, AU Summer

We took some Double IPA wort and fermented it on Brett. C. for about 2 months before doing two judicious dry hopping cycles with Australian Summer hops. The beer is so complex every time you take a sip it’ll change just a bit. We only have about 3 gallons of this beer so it’ll sell out real fast! not.

 

I’m a Mermansk

Color: Midnight Black, opague, dense brown head/ Finish: Rich with moderate sweetness, lingering notes of mocha, creme brulee & malted milk balls / Hops: Brewer’s Gold, Horizon

Collaborated with Atlanta Brewing Co. for their 25th Anniversary, this Imperial Stout utilizes Scottish Base Malt, Chilean Crystal Malt, English Roasted Malt & Norwegian Kveik Yeast. Rich & robust, this beer will increase in complexity as it warm

Cereal Keller II

5.3% ABV 25IBUs

Color: Glowing Yellow, hazy (unfiltered), pale white head/ Finish: Creamy and grainy with hints of lemon and floral hops / Hops: Horizon, Hersbrucker

We took our Germantown Pilsner and packaged a few kegs right off the fermenter to share this unique beer with our customers. Grainy and cereal-like with hints of floral hops and a light bitterness, this beer is an unfiltered and partially lagered pilsner. Easy to drink with a bit more body and malt complexity than a refined Pilsner. Great with brunch!

Hopping in the Name of IPA

7.2% ABV 90IBUs

Color: Orange with good clarity and a cream colored head / Finsh: Mix of berry and stone fruit with a piney hop aftertaste, biscuit and toasted malt balance / Hops: Columbus, Idaho 7, Ekuanot

Another great collab. with Tim Schiavone of soon to be Best End Brewing Co. off the West End Beltline. This Rye IPA delivers so many nuances from citrus to berry to piney to toasty. A great cooler weather IPA. Named after the original single from Rage Against the Machine this endangered species of beer while it lasts.

Smoke & Cinder Smoked Porter

5.8%ABV 33IBU

Color: Black, nearly opaque with a tan head / Finsh: Smoky sweet, hints of chocolate and caramel; clean/Hops: Brewer’s Gold, Fuggle

Last year’s Atlanta Cask Ale winner for classic style, this smoked porter is smooth and rich but finishes clean leaving you lingering for more. Great for ushering in the cooler fall weather. We used cherrywood smoked malt to impart the smoke aroma and flavor.

Hell for Society Quad

11% abv, 25 IBUs 

Color: Russet brown with garnet highlights/ Finish: Rich, toasty, soft yeast character. / Hops: Perle,Styrian Savinjski Golding

A decadent guilty pleasure, this quad has become an annual tradition here at Twain’s. Fantastic as a night cap, celebration or a beer to enjoy while engaging in conversation.

Heaven for the Climate Sunburnt Tripel

10.2% ABV 32 IBUs

Color: Deep Golden & Good Clarity / Finsh: Semi-dry with Moderate Fruitiness Hops/ Aramis

This decadent beer is strong while hiding its alcohol very well, what we refer to as “sneaky”. Lots of pear, apricot, peach & yellow apple fruitiness as well as notes of spicebox, coriander & cardamom from the yeast; we use the same of yeast strain as world famous Westmalle & Westvleteren. Look for its darker cousin, Hell for Society Quad later this fall!

Mild Night

3.3% ABV 19IBUs

Color: Mahogany Brown with Garnet highlights / Finsh: Salted Pretzel Crust, very low carbonation; surprisingly rich/Hops: Fuggle, Horizon

A true beer drinker’s beer and a favorite style of brewers and English beer fans, this flavorful mild taps in at a sessionable abv. This is a GREAT fall weather beer, goes well with football, hockey, day-drinking and almost all of our food on the menu (definitely try it with the meatloaf).

Celebrated Jumping Frog IPA

7.0% 90 IBU

Color: Light copper with brilliant clarity / Finsh: Hoppy, piney, grapefruit, bitter / Hops: Columbus, Chinock, Falconer’s Flight 7C’s

Rarely seen in the wild, this is a breed of “Clear IPA”. It exhibits unusual traits of intense hop aroma and flavor identified as fruity, piney, citrus and pungent while simultaneously possessing malt character. Enjoy this endangered species of beer while it lasts.

11th Hour APA

5.5% ABV 34 IBUs Notes: Bright citrus hop nose with tropical hop aromas of passionfruit, guava and mango; bready malt, clean finish It’s back! It’s back! Our flagship 11th Hour is hopped like an IPA but drinks like a Pale Ale.

High Grade ESB

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.
