Twisted X Fuego


Brewed by Twisted X Brewing Company
Dripping Springs, Texas USA
Style: Spice/Herb/Vegetable | Ratings: 27 | Alcohol: 6.5%
This extra hoppy Pilsner has a jalapeno aroma, a mild jalapeno flavor, and leaves you with pleasant warmth in the back of your throat. At 6.5% alcohol by volume Fuego is strong yet still crisp and refreshing. Most chili beers are more focused on the heat, but this one is 100% beer. The secret to this beer is the amount and duration of the jalapeno soak, as it has taken nearly two years to get it just right. About the name: Fuego is translated as "Fire" - The jalapeno is a fruit, a medium sized chili pepper with a warm, burning sensation when eaten. A mature jalapeno is 2-3.5 inches (5-9 cm) long and is commonly picked and sold when still green, but occasionally when ripe and red. The jalapeno is variously named in Mexico as huachinango and chile gordo The seeds have the heat of a jalapeno, but the flesh has a mild flavor close to a green bell pepper. We get our jalapenos from San Antonio’s finest spice company - Fiesta Spices - owned by the Bolner family.
