Twig's Beverage Factory, Mini-Museum

Twig's Beverage mini theater features the history of Twigs. Lots of memorabilia! Free soda samples. Nice gift/souvenir shop and very friendly staff.

Twig's Beverage Factory, Mini-Museum

This small beverage company was started by Floyd "Twig" Hartwig, who mixed his soft drink recipes with an ax handle. A mini-museum displays artifacts and memorabilia, a video stresses the benefits of sugar cane and beet sugar over corn syrup, and interior windows allow visitors to view the bottling line. At the tasting bar, made of recycled broken soda bottles, you can sample odd soda favors such as Caramel Apple, Butterscotch Root Beer, and Peach Cobbler.
