Twisted X Cow Creek

Brewed by Twisted X Brewing Company
Dripping Springs, Texas USA
5.4% Amber Lager/Vienna | 23 Ratings | 26 IBU |
This Vienna style lager is from the same vein as Negra Modelo. It has a rich dark color and a deep smooth flavor that combine for a beer with sophisticated character. At 5.4% alcohol by volume this is an easy drinking lager. About the name: Cow Creek is a tributary of Lake Travis (Burnet County). Cow Creek rises eight miles southeast of Burnet in southeast central Burnet County (at 30’40’ N, 98’09’ W) and runs southeast for twenty-one miles to its mouth on Lake Travis, a mile above Lago Vista in Travis County (at 30’29’ N, 98’01’ W). The creek, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses generally flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments and steep slopes and benches. Local soils of shallow clay and sandy loams support juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses.
