Twisted Taters – $9.49

You can’t go wrong with the classic season salt. It’s more seasoning than salt, and this time it was soft (but not undercooked). However, the crispiness of your Tater may vary.

The other flavor options are garlic parmesan, sour cream & chives, ghost pepper, or the new porcini powder.

Twisted Tater Blood N’ Guts – $14.99

This is hearty and filling but messy and difficult to eat. Be prepared to stop to eat this one and grab napkins.

Ghoul Juice – $16.50 for 20 oz. souvenir cup, $12.50 for souvenir refill or 12 oz. single serve

Myers’ Dark Rum, Cherry Brandy, Simple Syrup, Mango Nectar, Lime Juice, Dale DeGroff’s Pimento Bitters, and Peychaud’s Bitters

While this drink was sweet, it had a sweet mango flavor. We liked it over some of the other special cocktails available, and definitely recommend trying it for yourself!

Electric Death – $16.50 for 20 oz. souvenir cup, $12.50 for souvenir refill or 12 oz. single serve

New Amsterdam Gin, Blue Curaçao, Lime Juice, Vanilla Bean, Simple Syrup, Pineapple Juice, and Dale DeGroff’s Pimento Bitters

This is a refreshing gin drink where pineapple is the most prominent flavor. There is a hint of lime and the vanilla shows up late to make it seem creamy. The alcohol is somewhat masked by the juice, and none of us could taste the pimento bitters. There are small bits of vanilla bean visible in the drink. We all agreed that it’s a pleasant, cool, and refreshing drink.

Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest (5.8% ABV) – $15.00 for souvenir cup, $12.00 for refill or 12 oz. single serve

From Hacker-Pschorr: “As it was forbidden to brew in summer, a stronger beer – the Märzen – was brewed earlier in March. It would finally be served at the Oktoberfest, under the “Heaven of Bavaria.” We have returned once again to the age-old recipe and recreated that gloriously smooth, honey-coloured piece of history from times gone by.”

Whole Hog Pumpkin Ale (7% ABV) – $15.00 for souvenir cup, $12.00 for refill or 12 oz. single serve

From Whole Hog: “Of all the gold medal-winning pumpkin ales, one factor sets Whole Hog apart: spice. Pumpkin pie spices, natural cinnamon, nutmeg, and real pumpkin are perfectly balanced in this sweet, fully enveloping Pumpkin Ale.”

Nightmare Nectar Blonde Ale – $15.00 for souvenir cup, $12.00 for refill or 12 oz. single serve

Crooked Can Bloody Murder IPA – $16.00 for souvenir cup, $13.00 for refill or 12 oz. single serve

Voodoo Brewing Co. Lacto-Kooler (5.5% ABV) – $12.25

From Voodoo Brewing Co.: “Lacto-Kooler is our flavored Berliner Weisse. We made this sour ale with lots of “green” giving the beer its unique color and flavor.”

Original Sin Crimson Chaos Cider (6% ABV) – $10

From Original Sin: “Crimson Chaos was created by marrying two cherry varieties with a melody of luscious berries. The ruby red and maroon cherries introduce a balance of earthy tartness giving great depth of flavor. The berries create bursts of zest that dance on your tongue and, when combined with the cherries, result in an unforgettable joyous punch to the palate. This fruit forward blend is smooth throughout with a subtly tartness that tingles on the finish.”

Spellbound Cabernet Sauvignon (13.5% ABV) – $9

From Spellbound: “SPELLBOUND CABERNET SAUVIGNON showcases lush texture and bold dark fruit flavors of blackberry, ripe plum and the wine finishes with soft, integrated tannins.”

Noble Vines Chardonnay – $9

From Noble Vines: “Chardonnay vine selection 4 is exceptional because it offers an unparalleled range of flavors. These flavors vary, according to location, from typical Chardonnay flavors of green apple and citrus to tropical fruit such as pineapple, lychee and mango – which distinguish Chardonnay 4 from variations grown in France.”

Location

Twisted Taters are located at #15 on the map below, behind the Animal Actors amphitheater and near the Springfield, USA restrooms.
