Palm Beach County's newest craft brewery is opening today, February 6th, with doors flinging open at 5pm. Twisted Trunk Brewing Company will enter the books as the latest Florida brewery to come online, and the second from Tequesta Brewing Company's Fran Andrewlevich and Matt Webster.
Located at 2000 PGA Boulevard in Palm Beach Gardens, Twisted Trunk is aiming to offer a modern industrial setting for imbibing craft beer.
"I'm purposely not going to post a photo today," Twisted Trunk declared on social media Friday. "Today it's all about the birth of a new place in Palm Beach Gardens. So much hard work from so many great people have gone into Twisted Trunk."
"So come one, come all, be patient and let's have a great fu@ing party!!!!!!!"
What can be expected from the big day? The first brewed beers to be tapped tonight include an El Dorado IPA, Session IPA, German Pilsner, Irish Red, Watermelon Saison, English Stout, and Black Saison. Der Chancellor will be available in bottles, a recent development from parent brewery Tequesta, and as always seems to be the case with a craft beer party, a plethora of Florida guest beers.
Twisted Trunk Brewing Company was constructed with a 20-barrel brewhouse, and has brought on Brewzzi's former brewer Reiny Knieriemen and the hard working Kenny St. Cyr from Tequesta to help brew and manage the operations.
"We're going to be a community brew crew," Andrewlevich told the Palm Beach Post.
"We saw the growth of craft beer and we just want to make more of it."
