As Atlanta Magazine reported late last month, Twain’s former brewer – Chase Medlin – is opening his own brewery – Locomotion – in Chamblee early next year. As such, Twain’s – which has been a jumping off point for many of Georgia’s greatest brewers – needed a new head brewer. Enter Mike Castagno. Twain’s sends along this note…
There is a changing of the guard at Twain’s Brewpub! After six years of delicious beer and hard work, we offer our sincerest thanks to Chase Medlin for his dedication to Twain’s. We are confident that Locomotion will be making some killer beers in the future.
Chase’s skills will be an excellent addition to production brewing in Georgia and we are proud to have played a part, and knowing we will share many more good times. As for our next Head Brewer, Twain’s is delighted to announce that Mike Castagno has agreed to join the Twain’s family.
Mike will bring his vast knowledge of beer making and beer styles to craft a new lineup of ales, lagers and perhaps the occasion wild beer. Mike joins the Twain’s team with over 11 years of award winning homebrewing under his belt, he is certified as a BJCP Master Beer Judge and professional taste evaluator and occasional beer writer. Mike’s background in beer and his knowledge from being a commercial R&D Chemist writes an exciting introduction to the next chapter of Twain’s Brewpub’s brewery. We can’t wait to sip his creations and share Mike’s passion for beer with Georgia’s beer loving community.
