Love this place! Super chill, a little hippie-ish and dirty. Very spacious inside, plenty of tables, billiards, shuffleboard.. fun.
10 taps of house beers, including Pudd' Head stout, Tropicalia IPA (Aussie Summer), Dirty DIPA (collaboration with Sweetwater), Hell for Society stout, Vanilla in Hell, Gingerbread Brown...
As for food, we had the burger deal, $10 for a burger and beer. Great Brasstown local grass-fed beef, cooked perfectly rare, plus garlic fries and an array of sauces.
Beers were very good, service was warm and quick and the burger was outrageous. Reasonable prices. Loved the ambience as well and can't wait to return in my visit to the ATL.

Twain's has been a go to place for me. The brewmaster always has a trick up his sleeve and leaves me happy and please with his new creations. Twain's has pool tables and shuffle board, but quite frankly I have never used any of them.
My favorite things to order are the Garlic Fries and Honey Garlic Wings from the menu. The beer selection always reaches out to different pallets and pleases me every time I am there.
Recently, I had my 30th Birthday there and was not let down by the brews that were-a-stering.
Twain's is my local spot that I try to make it to at least once a quarter to see what the Brewmaster has in store.

stopped into Twain's after dinner at Leon's and more beer at the Brick Store, both walkable to this spot.
interesting place - more of a pool hall than anything - tons of pool tables, a few shuffleboard tables, some odd arcade games as well. There was also some (bad) live music going on.
Oh yeah, it's also a brewpub. Pretty brief list - I went for the IPA, which was fine, but not noteworthy.
There are also some bad tv's and a sense that this was probably once a very smokey poolhall.
Odd place, i would stick to the brickstore.

I go here from time to time, as it is the closest brewpub to me, by far.
Overall selection is fairly good, and they do have a list of everything they carry. I pretty much just drink their in-house stuff when I go there, though. It's usually pretty solid, if not spectacular, and it's about the same price as their domestic bottles, a nice deal.
The food is hit or miss. I recommend the fish and chips, though.
The service is fine.
The atmosphere (solidly on the hipster side of things) doesn't do it for me, personally, and keeps me from going there more often. However, that is totally a personal preference issue, so I can't dock them for that.
Overall, it's a pretty good spot for beer lovers in the area.

Visited Twain's on the first night of my spring break with my girlfriend. We ordered the fries appetizer (with sriracha mayo), the beer sampler, a 21st Amendment Brew Free or Die, the mussels, and a Saisson DuPont
Let me start out by saying that I did not enjoy a single beer they offered in their sampler. I felt bad because I hate to trash a place like this, but there was nothing good about it. Their Rye beer tasted like I was drinking bacon. The fact that that I didn't like that tells me this is not the place for me.
The service and food was good though. The bartenders were friendly, though not the quickest to refill our glasses.
The mussels were tremendous and complemented our Siasson wonderfully. This was the first time I had mussels (you're welcome, Megan) and I think it was a great plae to start.
Overall, their guest beers selection is pretty good and I would go back for them, but I do not see myself ever ordering another one of their house brews.
