Do you look forward to Monday? I bet the answer is no, as not many of us do. That all changes now that Mirror Twin Brewing is giving folks a reason to get excited about Mondays again.
As an extension of their “Twin Draft” system, “Mirror Monday” brings a special edition keg out for patrons to try every, you guessed it, Monday.
This system also gives their brewers a creative outlet and a way to test out new ideas with their wildly popular flagship beers.
I asked Head Brewer and Co-owner Derek DeFranco about “Mirror Mondays” and he had this to say: “It’s our way of experimenting and trying to push the boundary of what beer can be. Our number one goal is to make the best beer possible!”
And push the boundary they have with beers such as Clogging Yer Noggin, a milk stout with nutmeg and lactose added to it, giving it that eggnog twist.
Another crowd favorite was their ‘Blueberry Haze’. DeFranco and crew took a base NEIPA and added blueberry puree to it, resulting in an incredible color change, reminiscent of Violet Beauregarde from “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.”
Mirror Monday has led to brewing bigger batches instead of smaller test batches, which definitely has folks excited.
First introduced back in early January 2018, You, Me and Mr. P.B. is their flagship milk chocolate stout, Cowabunga, conditioned on Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
Debuting this Monday, February 12th, and bringing some heat along with it, is a mango habanero wheat beer. Blipz and Chits is the brainchild of new assistant brewer Mike Brown. Brown hopes to use some of his home grown peppers in future batches.
While it seems there may not be a cure for the “Monday blues” yet, Mirror Twin is trying their best to find one. By giving us a much needed, after work treat at the beginning of the work week, we still hold out hope that those “Monday blues” will be soon forgotten.
