Mark Twain Brewing from Hannibal, Missouri

More from Mark Twain

Mark Twain Brewing from Hannibal, Missouri
"We take great pride in being located across the street from the boyhood home of Mark Twain, but we have some history, too. First of all, one of the brewery’s owners, Bill Martin, is related to Moses Bates, Hannibal’s founding father, as Bates’ sister Winifred is Martin’s great-great-great grandmother. According to letters, Moses and Winifred had planned a short trip to Kentucky to visit their uncle, but Moses fled west in a huff after an argument with his father. Winifred said to their dad something along the lines of, “Don’t worry. I’ll go fetch him, and in a few short days, we’ll return home.” Well, neither ever returned home again, and the rest is Hannibal history."

Mark Twain Jumping Frog IPA....$6.49 / 22oz
Our American-Style India Pale Ale is a shining example of a West Coast IPA. Significantly hop-forward, with Cascade and Centennial lending heavy notes of citrus, especially grapefruit. Bitterness is sharp but does not linger, making it well balanced and refreshing.

Mark Twain Rambler's Red...$5.99 / 22oz
Our American Red Ale is a bit sweet, with a lightly hopped, tea-like flavor, and an even, round body. It exhibits a pleasant, toasted malt character with hints of milk chocolate and a somewhat dry finish. Easy drinking and delicious, Rambler’s is one of our most popular beers.

Mark Twain Clemens Kolsch...$5.99 / 22oz
Brewed in the traditional German style, Clemens’ K├Âlsch features classic Pilsner malt flavors, a delicate, fruity aroma, and mild hop bitterness. Crisp, moderately dry, and sessionable.

Mark Twain Brewing Halley's Blueberry Saison...$8.49 / 22oz
Our version of this classic Belgian style is slightly sweet but ultimately thirst-quenching. The use of French Saison yeast adds hints of citrus fruit, Chardonnay grapes, cloves, and black pepper, giving balance to the biscuity, sweet flavors of the malt bill. To enhance the natural fruitiness of the style, we add fresh blueberries during primary fermentation. A perfect homage to the spring and summer months.
