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.
Czech Dark Lager. This rich and fulfilling dark lager delivers on elements of a Munich Dunkel (think Autumn Is Coming from 2019) but with a bit more richness and mild chocolate character from the darker malts used. Delicious! 4.5% abv
Luscious and velvety, this stout only uses malted barley, hops, water, oats & yeast to deliver the impression of dark chocolate coated doughnuts while maintaining its beer integrity and drinkability. We used an absurd about of oats. Like the quakers were impressed
A few years ago we captured our own mix of house cultures to do wild ales. For the 5th Generation of this house grown culture, we have a mixed-fermentation solera in a red wine barrel that demonstrates beautiful elements of a dry and sour Flanders Red. Rich malt, bright acidity, red fruit, hints of oak.
Homebrewer Collaboration Alert! Randall McPherson of Covert Hops Society and Final Gravity homebrew clubs was invited in to share his multi-award winning recipe for Session IPA.

Using every cheat code in the books, Citra, Galaxy and Wai-iti deliver bright tropical, stone fruit and citrus fruits which dominate your senses but keep you coming back for more. Homebrewers rock!
Hops: El Dorado, Kohatu, Cashmere, Ariana, Mackinac 6.6%abv
In our never ending quest for the perfect house IPA, we took v6.0 hop bill and changed up the yeast! A bright and heady hop aroma of tropical fruit and bright citrus follows with red fruit and a bit of melon. No fruits were harmed making this beer.

House culture slow sour . Aged in a red wine barrel. this is the last variant of our Weizenbock collab with homebrewer Ryan Stansbury. Fermented with our own house captured and propigated sour culture, this beer is very sour yet smooth and rich as the malt softens and the expressive wild culture throws off lots of fruit notes. No fruit was added, yet it exhibits notes of passionfruit, sour cherry, and black plums.

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.
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
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
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.
5.8% ABV 29 IBUsTasting 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
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
Twain’s has been fortunate to evolve with Decatur over the past 22 years, and we’re ready to take the next step in that evolution this summer!
We are going to be completely rebuilding our patio, including all new seating and tables as well. We’ll be adding some architectural elements to the exterior to help make the building stand out and adding some greenery back as well. While we are working on the patio we will also be doing some updating inside including giving our bathrooms a much needed upgrade, as well as new windows as well some more cosmetic updates to our interior!
5.1% ABV 31 IBUs Tasting notes:Cocoa, chili peppers, and roast malt upfront with a medium hot burn on the finish. We paired up with Hotlanta Peppers out of Atlanta, GA to make this chili stout. We used a blend of pepper flakes that consists of several varieties of habanero & jalapeño peppers as well as the red devil’s tongue. Suprisingly refreshing for a chili stout in the summer.

If you enjoy the New World hops, you’ll be keen on this hoppy pale ale. Kia ora mate!
5.6% ABV 22 IBUs Tasting notes: Yeast character of bubblegum, pear, and peach with toasty, biscuit, and caramel malt notes. Assistant Brewer Sean Miller took the reigns on this beer. A great everyday beer and an excellent “Intro to Belgian Beer” product.
6.8% ABV 45 IBUs Tasting notes:High citrus flavors of orange, tangerine, mandarin, grapefruit & a hint of lemon. Creamy mouthful, not heavy or filling. Bready & biscuity malt character supports the moderate bitterness. This unfiltered IPA is a hybrid of the West Coast IPA & the New England IPA. Hops: Manderina Barvaria, Amarillo, Galaxy, Cascade, Sorachi Ace
5.9% ABV 21 IBUs Tasting Notes: Toasty malt, baking bread and pale bread crust; hint of floral hops to round out the beer. Ourspring edition of our “Alternative Facts Series”, this golden Marzen is the perfect beer to hasten that spring feeling. The beer is malty but well balanced, clean and dry on the finish. We took our popular Oktoberfest recipe and lighten the malt and raised the continental hops to make this more warm weather friendly. Prost!
Tasting Notes: Roasted malts, toast and caramel meld together to create a rich and full flavored experience. Brewed with fellow Grand Master Beer Judge Phil Farrell, this is a comfort beer through and through. Rich and complex, Go Eagles
