I have been to Twain's numerous times over the years, as it changed from smokey pool hall to brew pub (with half the pool tables). It has been a welcome change, in my book. Atmosphere is very diverse, since it is not a brew pub alone, it pulls in the billiard crowd and the other younger BMC drinkers. The place itself is much nicer after the remodeling. I have enjoyed a number of the beers they offer, and have been impressed by and large. They normally have a fairly nice mix of their brews, a couple guest taps, and as previously stated all the BMCs. Service is pretty good, but don't expect a the same beer knowledge you might encounter at all brew pubs, its definitely a mix. Food is good (I have not been to a dinner, but need to). I almost did not include a rating for it, as I have only eaten there twice, and both times had what amounted to standard pub fare. In the end, Twain's is a nice stop on any beer visit to Decatur, they have a few beers that will really impress, and makes a nice stop at the end of your swing through town.

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.
