Did the flavors of sugar and bitter sweet almonds and coffee in Imperial Biscotti Break also make you sentimental? Now we topped it off with insane amounts of doughnuts. This all time American favorite is making it’s way back into the spotlight and we at Evil Twin Brewing are not letting a tasty trend pass us by without taking it to the next level. Drink it with great gusto – Forza Doughnuts.
The Bruery- Autum Maple
Brewed with 17 lbs. of yams per barrel (in other words, a lot of yams!), this autumn seasonal is a different take on the “pumpkin” beer style. Brewed with cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, vanilla, molasses, and maple syrup, and fermented with our traditional Belgian yeast strain, this bold and spicy beer is perfect on a cold autumn evening. We have also created bourbon barrel aged, 100% brettanomyces and soured versions of Autumn Maple.
Evil Twin- Firewater
Many of us have a passionate love-hate relationship with painfully spicy food and beverage – there is simply something substantial fascinating, thrilling and a little frightening about a burning sensation in your mouth. Scientists are at a loss why humans (and only humans) find such great joy in tasty pain. Perhaps it’s what makes us human – it takes a complicated brain, mixed with weird self-awareness to enjoy events that the body are programmed to treat as a threat but the mind knows better. Test your human skills with this burning beer – mind over body. Fire walk with us.

Just received today; Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin is the latest take on their signature IPA. Some may say there are few ways to improve Sculpin’s unique flavor, but the tart freshness of grapefruit perfectly complements our IPA’s citrusy hop character. Grapefruit’s a winter fruit, but this easy-drinking ale tastes like summer.
This one-time-only beer by Stone, a fascinating addition to their “Odd Beers for Odd Years” series, incorporates cinnamon, cardamom, clove, ginger, a dash of black pepper and a dose of black tea to emulate the aroma and taste of authentic chai tea. Combine these strikingly piquant ingredients with the classic version of Stone Imperial Russian Stout―with its incumbent flavors of chocolate, black currants, coffee and roastiness―and an already profoundly rewarding beer ascends to new, flavorful dimensions.
Sunday Morning Stout, 11.3% ABV, is an American Imperial Stout aged in bourbon barrels. The result? A beautiful ebony pour with a large, creamy, off-white head that lasts and lasts. The aromas of roasted coffee and bourbon awaken your senses while their flavors blend with hints of chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla and caramel. The perfect beer to redefine how you relax on Sunday!
