We welcome you to the first-of-its-kind cider-focused restaurant in the Southeast, featuring the largest variety of cider, with over 100 ciders available on tap or in bottles. Named after an old southern cider apple, Black Twig features a Txotx (pronounced /CHO-ch/) - the first indoor Txotx in the United States! Don’t fear the Txotx: it offers you the opportunity to taste traditional Basque or Asturian cider in small, 3oz pours, all in an exciting, convivial environment. Mattie Beason, a forebearer in the Durham culinary scene, proudly offers his third Durham endeavor; in addition to his successful Six Plates, which resided in the same space as Black Twig, he also owns Mattie B’s Public House. A cider expert, Beason was one of the original eight cider instructors for the US Association of Cider Makers’ First Cider Certification Course, and is excited to bring his cider knowledge and passion to the Durham community.
