Zonker Stout brewed by
Snake River Brewing - Jackson, Wyoming
well-balanced foreign style stout with a huge amount of roasted
barley as well as chocolate, black, and caramel malts. The intense
roast character is the main attribute of this black colored beer.
The alcohol content is 6.0%. Zonker has been recognized time and
again as one of the top foregin style stouts.
Beer Review by Beer Advocate
Appearance: Opaque, pitch black body with a brown, creamy head that
retains for the entire session and drags tons of goopy lace all the
way down. Damn near perfect.
Aroma: Roasted barley, mocha, and cocoa powder come to mind right
away. Very full and malty with a clean hoppy finish. Not too
complex, but certainly enjoyable.
Taste: Dark chocolate, roasted barley, red currants, char, and
earthy bitterness make up the bulk of the flavor profile. Bold,
complex, and surprisingly smooth. Borderline imperial stout,
although it looks like that's acceptable with this style. I dig it.
Mouthfeel: Big, roasty, creamy, and prickly. Carbonation is fine and
moderate in strength. A lot going on here, but everything comes
together very nicely.
Overall: Fantastically smooth, complex, and drinkable. Keep 'em

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 5000
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.

We’ve been around since 1994 when Joni and Albert Upsher decided to
open the restaurant and brewery. In 2007, the Upshers retired and
sold to Ted and Noa Staryk. Snake River Brewing has always been
family owned and operated. Everything here is handmade, we even have
our own bakery.
