Who We Are

What started as an homage to Derek DeFranco’s life as a mirror twin, or an identical twin with asymmetrical features, Mirror Twin Brewing has turned into a twist on traditional taproom offerings. The twin draft system embodies what Mirror Twin is all about: bringing people from all walks of life together to cultivate a sense of community through a shared interest: damn good beer.

The brewery serves up customers from both sides of life: the tried-and-true beer purists and the anything-goes experimental adventure seekers. This variety allows MTB to take an innovative approach to brewing through utilizing various hop agents/ variants usually resulting in a product unlike any other in Lexington, KY.
