A Bit Twisted Brewpub | Cheating With Juice New England IPA

December 9, 2021 |

Coloradans and Texans don’t always mix well. Anyone on the slopes at Vail will tell you that. Also, breweries generally don’t serve mixed drinks, have a full kitchen, smoke their own BBQ meats and serve 12 beers brewed on site. But the aptly named A Bit Twisted Brewpub boldly mixes all these elements. Owners Matt Vargocko (from Texas), Mike Richie (from Colorado) and Brandon Foreman (also from Texas) love to twist the standard narrative. Any given day in the taproom you can enjoy Colorado or Texas sports while drinking a variety of beers with “a bit twisted” names such as Suck It Up Buttercup Stout, What Sharp Teeth You Have New England IPA and Run Run As Fast As You Can Oatmeal Stout.

Well get ready for flu season. You just LOVE you some pumpkin spice? Tell that to the child laborers who sweat away in the pumpkin spice mines for pennies on the dollar.
