a subtle hop note. An authentic German lager yeast strain adds to
the true flavor of this beer. The malt forward profile of Snake
River Lager makes it a fine complement to pizzas and red meat. The
alcohol content is 4.8% abv. 2010 Gold Medal Winner at the U.S. Open
Beer Review by Beer Advocate
Appearance: Pleasing clear amber with short cap of pillowy,
off-white head with a nice rim of lacing.
Aroma: Bready, light caramel malty aroma, a little cracker and toast
too, with a subtle herbal, earthy hops note
Taste: The flavor is excellent with bold bready, cracker, and light
toast notes, a moderate caramel malt kick, and a subdued, mild hop
bitterness that keeps the potential sweetness in check. No yeast
esters -- a well made Vienna lager.
Mouthfeel: Very smooth with a good balance of carbonation for the
Overall: Just a great example of a craft brewery doing a
good-to-great job with all their beers. This one is nudging great --
highly drinkable with a wonderful malty, bready presence and just
the right amount of caramel sweetness. Good work on this one Snake
River. Fresh from the brewery doesn't hurt either.
Snake River Brewery
Clean, quality beers have always been the goal for the brewers at
Snake River Brewing. The hundreds of national and international
brewing awards we’ve won attest to this goal being consistently met.
In the year 2000 and again in 2001 we were named “Small Brewery of
the Year” at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado.
For the most part, we brew our beers to style, seeking out authentic
ingredients from all around the globe. Each of our brewers is tasked
with concocting one or more “signature series” recipes. The result
is a wide variety of lagers and ales flowing through the taps at our
Brewpub. Are the brewers proud of their creations? Next time you’re
at the bar just ask the person working at the kettle – hope you’ve
got an hour or so to listen…
In 2006 we received USDA Organic Certification for our Organic Beer
#1 (“OB-1” for short). This Organic English Style Brown Ale helps us
encourage sustainable farming practices for barley and hops.
Jackson is a small town and we are a small brewery. At just 8000
barrels per year, we can devote all the attention needed to make
every one of those barrels the best they can be.
Jackson Hole is a unique environment with world-class outdoor
activities. It is only fitting that we craft world-class “beers to
match the scenery”. Of course, we take this responsibility
seriously; the brewers spend nearly as much time outdoors as they do
in the brewery.
