Zonker Stout brewed by Snake River Brewing - Jackson, Wyoming

Zonker Stout  brewed by Snake River Brewing - Jackson, Wyoming   

A rich, 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 coming!

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.

Snake River Brewpub
Make yourself at home at Snake River Brewing in the heart of the Teton Mountain Range. All roads, trails, bike paths, climbing routes and ski runs lead to “The Brewpub”! After a day in the great outdoors how can you not partake of a tasty malt beverage and a delicious meal?

Considered by many to be Jackson’s “living room”, our pub provides locals and visitors alike a unique social experience. We are non-smoking (always have been) and family-friendly.

We open each day at 11:30 am and our kitchen serves until 11:00 pm. Wyoming says you gotta leave by 2:00am.

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.
