Bring out the wheat! Inside every Twix bar is that crunchy, cookie center, the perfect match to this unfiltered wheat beer. Twix’s balanced simplicity lets The Love’s spiced finish shine.

REDRUM, REDRUM! Twizzlers, lost somewhere between fruit snack and chew, finds its companion in Reviver Red IPA — somewhere between Amber Ale and IPA. The firm, maltiness of Reviver provides a solid base for this match, while citrus notes accent the sweet strawberry of Twizzlers.

The subtle richness of York Peppermint Pattie’s creamy white center pierces this brew’s dark roasted malts and espresso flavors like a streak of white in Bride of Frankenstein’s hair. York’s cool mint heightens 2 Tone’s vanilla bean sweetness.
