Tasting Notes: Caramel, milk chocolate, dried fruit, baking cookies, creamy, silky smooth, indulgent
This oatmeal cream stout honors our brewer’s father and his ability to recover from adversity. It is made with a heaping amount of oats and lactose to provide a silky smooth mouthfeel and a full body while keeping the alcohol in check. Think oatmeal raisin cookies in a glass… *Contains dairy products, please avoid if you are lactose intolerant or vegan

For the second batch of coffee beer (aka beta) we took the Five Stitches Porter and infused JavaVino Amigos blend coffee to deliver a rich coffee experience for this cold weather.
Tasting Notes: Ashy, coffee, unsweetened chocolate, biscuits, toast
This beer has always signified the changing of the season to autumn and prepping for football, hockey and playoff baseball. The beer becomes much more complex upon warming to cellar temperatures (~ 50°F).
5.1% ABV 43 IBUs
Tasting Notes: Floral, piney, grapefruit, wood.
This Old School IPA is the ‘anti-juice’. All Columbus hops in this brew will melt your face like the 90’s IPAs of yore. this is an all Columbus IPA with enough malt to soften the blow of these extreme hops. Exfoliate your taste buds and have a true IPA.

Our fourth beer in the “Alternative Facts Series” is a Czech-style Pilsner that was brewed with Floor-Malted Bohemian Pilsner malt and Czech Saaz hops while using our proprietary techniques to make lager-style beers with ale species of yeast. Na zdravi!
5.7% ABV 36 IBU
Tasting Notes: Stone fruit esters of apricot and peach, red pear, grainy malt, light body, slight spicy note
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.
4.8%ABV 55 IBU
Tasting Notes: High nuttiness, unmistakable wild rice character, rich toffee, creme caramel and biscuits/saltines with moderate earthy English hops, low carbonation
An interesting twist on our traditional English Brown Ale, this beer was brewed with a substantial amount of wild rice. The beer will pair with nearly everything on the menu (especially fish & chips) and is extremely drinkable. Welcome Autumn, Cheers!

Fresh Hop Rye IPA!!
Notes: Herbal, grassy and spicy hop character, chewy rye and toasted bread
Fresh hops are taken straight off the vine and shipped for immediate use; the hops go into the beer with the following 24 hrs. This fresh hop beer is made with all Nugget hops, a hop know for its spicy and herbal character. The beer is one of 7 collaborations Tim Schiavone of Banyan Roots Brewing Co. has done throughout Georgia this fall. We were sad to loose Tim as our Asst. Brewer here at Twain’s but were are so happy and excited to support his new venture at Banyan Roots Brewing Co.

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.
