Twain’s is happy to welcome Mike Castagno as our new Head Brewer.
Barleywine Paradiso, 8.8%
Unexpectedly, this barleywine is quite approachable. The complexity of the beer brings forth flavors of ripe pomme fruit, fig and date with rich caramel to complement. Despite this, the finish is moderately dry preventing it from becoming cloyingly sweet.
Dark Matter American Stout, 5.8%
This beer is a tribute to Garrett Sever, who mentored our head brewer in his homebrewing days when he was living in Delaware. This stout boasts a big nose full of dark roasted coffee (no coffee was added, dark toasted bread and hints of dark chocolate. The beer finishes quite dry and fairly bitter which cleanses the palate and keeps you wanting a little bit more.
Sam’s Smoked Porter, 6.4%
Think about Barbeque: rich, dense smoke with a bit of ashy, charred bark and a sweet full finish. Give this beer about a half pint before you decide whether you like it or not. Trust me, as you keep drinking it, you’ll grow more and more fond of it!
Clara’s Chestnut Brown Ale, 6.0%
Worry not – the nut brown ale offered here contains no nuts. Mahogany in color, the flavor of walnuts and chestnuts comes purely from the malt. This is paired with hints of toasted bread, caramel and chocolate.
Celebrated Jumping Frog IPA, 7%
This IPA pays homage to some of the Northern California IPAs that are ripe with pine and resiny hop aroma but supported with a touch of grapefruit on the nose. The malt is restrained to allow the hops to shine and finishes medium dry with a firm bitterness that is noticeable but does not linger. 70 IBUs
11th Hour APA, 6.0%
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.
High End ESB, 5.2%
This British-style pale ale is incredibly drinkable while showcasing earthy and floral hops in the aroma. The finish is moderately bitter and balanced with biscuit and cracker-type malt flavors and rich caramel throughout.
My Girl Belgian Blonde, 7.4%
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!
This single batch vintage ale pours black in color and has the familiar gingerbread spice notes with candied ginger and hints of vanilla, cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. There is a soft and subtle chocolatey undertone that marries with the creamy mouthfeel and bready malt. Get this beer while you can in order to usher in the holiday season. Limited release
