Twisted X Makes Jalapeño Pilsner, Tequila Black Lager

Twisted X Brewing is based in Austin, Texas.  Brand new to the brewing scene, the brewery is crammed into a mere 1,200 square foot space.  Jim Sampson & Shane Bordeau founded the brewery and still have full time jobs, brewing on nights and weekends.  The idea behind Twisted X is to bring the Mexican flair & culture to craft brewing.

The beer lineup includes the Twisted X (lager), Fuego (jalapeño pilsner), Cerveza de los Muertos (a Vienna lager), Señor Viejo (a tequila barrel-aged schwarzbier) and Chupahopra (a hoppy India Pale Ale).

Everything right now is draft only first released on May 5th.  Cans are expected by the end of the year, alongside a larger location (in 2012) and wider distribution within the state of Texas.  [Community Impact, TexMexBeer]
