from the Austin Beer Guide – Twisted X Brewing Co.

There is Tex-Mex cuisine and if you order a pint from Twisted X Brewing, 2
The labels are fun and playful despite being filled with barbed wire and the beers are mostly on the light side! With one hoppy exception.

Here are the lagers that struck me as the ones that I would sample first….
Siesta Prickly Pear Lager
“A summer seasonal based on Twisted X. “Bloody Butcher” red corn from Richardson farms provides a slight hint of color. Prickly pears from the fields of Texas provide the rest of the color and add a fruity cactus flavor. Siesta is more carbonated than our other beers and this adds to its summer time drinkability. It has 5.5% alcohol by volume. We vote to reinstate the Siesta tradition, sit back, take a snooze, relax and ride the Texas heat wave with a refreshing Siesta.”

Senor Viejo
“This Schwarzbier has been “imperialized” (alcohol content increased) and then left to age in tequila barrels (used Jack Daniels barrels which are then used by Republic Tequila to age there tequila to Repasado or Anejo styles). Aging this unique beer in tequila barrels adds subtle flavors of vanilla and oak while the tequila adds a mild citrus/agave sweetness. At 8.2% alcohol by volume Senor Viejo is our strongest, most seasoned beer.”
