At Twisted X Brewing Company, it’s simple; we love craft beer as much as the Lone Star State! We specialize in creating handmade Texan-American beers that are made with high-quality, local products. Our passion to make great beer has led to us inventing Tex Mex Beer™, which combines Texas craft beer with Mexican-style spirit and flavor.

Our mission is to have fun, treat people right, and bring something new to our local market through beer. We’re passionate about combining hops, grains, yeast, and water into your glass to create something unique that we’re really proud of and that you will enjoy and share with your friends and family.

There are many people out there who find one beer they like and are too afraid of the unknown and never branch out. This is where Twisted X comes in. Our Tex Mex Beer™ began with the goal of educating people on how different ingredients can make complex beers that will make you rethink how you view beer. Our team of brewers come from diverse backgrounds, but they all share the love of great beer and bring their own unique recipes and ideas to the table. We have maintained the 3 barrel brewing system that Tex Mex Beer™ was founded on to allow our brewers to create small batch beers that capture the types and styles of beer they love.













Jim Sampson - Twisted X Brewing Company


Jim Sampson has been brewing beer since the late 90s and in 2009 he started thinking about taking his brewing passion to the next level and turning it into a career. In early 2009, Shane Bordeau joined Jim in brewing beer and together they decided to launch a brewery that specialized in brewing Mexican style beers brewed in Texas by Texans. They knew they wanted to be the first to market with Tex Mex Beer™ and they bought an initial 10 gallon pilot system in September of 2009. This system allowed for testing and consistent production and the first few recipes were born.

At Phase 1 of the brewery and after upgrading the brewhouse in Cedar Park, Twisted X Brewing Company released three types of “small batch” brews. We launched with Twisted X – a premium lager with a twist, Cow Creek – a full bodied Vienna style lager and Fuego – a jalapeno infused pilsner. We felt these beers appealed to our target market and even piqued the interest of those looking to try something new. As brewery operations expanded, we added Chupahopra – an Amarillo dry-hopped IPA and a couple of seasonal beers: Siesta – a prickly pear lager, and Senor Viejo – an imperial black lager aged in Dulce Vida tequila barrels.



At Phase 2 – Ted Stewart came on board as a partner in early 2012 and helped ramp our expansion and relocation to a 10,000 square foot brewery and tasting room in Dripping Springs, Texas in November 2013. We upgraded to a 30 barrel Criveller brew system and are currently operating with four 60 barrel fermenters and four 120 barrel fermenters. We self-distribute our beers from San Antonio to Georgetown and we are in many grocery stores, bars, and restaurants. We look forward to making the ranks as one of the fastest growing craft microbreweries in the country and have additional expansion plans on the horizon. Cheers, y’all!




Come by the brewery for a tour and samplings or pick up a six pack at your local vendor.

Pour yourself a Twisted X brew and always drink upstream from the herd.
