In an abundance of caution…

Friends due to the surge in Covid-19 and hospitalizations, and in a continued abundance of caution, Twain’s will remain closed. We have been very fortunate that our staff is healthy and we will reopen as soon as we are comfortable doing so. These are very difficult times in our industry, and we are balancing many factors in making these decisions. We expect to reopen with an invigorated focus on providing you, our customers, the best we have to give, Twain’s food, beer and love.
We hope that you and yours stay safe and healthy during this complicated time.

Twain’s & Corona Virus

Friends, Family and Patrons,

Twain’s will be closing operations for the foreseeable future to protect you, our staff and the greater population from COVID19. This is the most difficult decision we have ever made, but it is one that we feel is necessary for the common good, and to ensure our ability to eat, drink and laugh about it in the future at Twain’s.

We have always felt blessed to be a part of Decatur’s community and we hope that this crisis is shortened to a minimum and that is why we are doing this.

Thank you for all of your support, it has been nearly 25 years and we plan to come back soon to celebrate that milestone.

ABOVE ALL…please stay healthy…listen to the experts and stay home. The welfare of our community is at stake and you are the most important piece. Be well, and take care of each other (at a safe distance). It will take many more sacrifices by each of us to get to the end of this crisis safely. We look forward to raising a glass at that time.

Thank you again.

Command Prompt

Double Oatmeal Stout 6.6%abv

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.

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.

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

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.

When Life Gives you Zythos American Amber Ale

5.8% ABV 29 IBUs  Tasting notes: Bold resiny hops with rich caramel malt, moderate sweetness, deep toasted bread – yet the malt does not linger.. Think of this as the little brother of our popular winter release: Celebrated Jumping Frog IPA. This beer utilizes all Zythos hops

Samuel Brett Saison

The wild yeast (Brettanomyces) gives this beer a funky, fruity character typical of Saisons with Brett added. We co-fermented Saison yeast with Brettanomyces in a French white wine barrel and aged the beer in the barrel for 3 months
