    When I read the news, I honestly felt confused about it but I guess that's the way beer distro goes sometimes.

    I haven't had Snake River since I was out in the Tetons 6 or 7 years ago. Wasn't even aware they bottled for distro. Interesting.

    No more bottles(except the hard to get stuff), they have gone can only.

    I wonder if that means they were bought out or if they made this expansion on thir own?

    I go to Jackson Hole, Wyoming every winter to ski and I always make it a point to visit the Snake River Brewery. Their Zonker Stout has always been the best Foreign/Export Stout I've had. They recently released an IPA called Pako's which is very solid. They also have a great Lager. Very good small brewery that I'm happy to now have in NYC

    This explains a lot. the past 2 times i was at gingerman, i saw snake river. drank some pako's right around NYE and then a few days ago they had zonker on tap (didn't get around to the zonker due to other beers being consumed) but i was pretty pumped none-the-less. i hope cans make it out to LI, but i'm happy to nab cans in the city when i'm there. there stuff is fantastic. even the vienna lager and OB-1 smokes.

    I had a Pako's just the other day and agree that it was solid. I'm glad we are getting these in the NYC area now.
