"Annie Oakley"

Apricot Brett Saison

8.4% ALC/VOL | AGED IN Oak Barrels 

MASON SNALE WORKS. SLOW BEER.

“Aim at a high mark and you will hit it. No, not the first time, nor the second and maybe not the third. But keep on aiming and keep on shooting for only practice will make you perfect.” These are wise words from Annie Oakley to keep in mind when brewing funky beers. In this limited Snale Works release we believe we hit that mark. Annie Oakley is our take on a classic Brett Saison but with a twist; we brewed Annie Oakley with 24 pounds of Apricots per barrel for a subtle sweetness, to enrich this herbaceous and funky brew. Aged in American oak barrels for 3 months to impart funkiness and toasty vanilla notes, round out this limited release. Only 1500 of this delicate brew were made, be sure to cherish this release as it will be gone before you know it…

"B.A. Baracus"

 Limited Edition 2018 Barleywine

14% ALC/VOL | AGED IN WHiskey and Bourbon Barrels

MASON SNALE WORKS. SLOW BEER.

“Shut up, fool!” wise words from our favorite A-Team Badass. Just like Sergeant Boscco, this limited Snale Works release has a massive character with a lot going on. This Barleywine is a gnarly 14% ABV, aged in Cutwater Single Malt Whiskey and Bourbon Barrels for over a year.  Rich and full bodied, with succulent notes of toasted vanilla, bourbon, toffee, plums, and black cherries.  B.A. Baracus is sure to be a bottle to hold onto. It’s limited release is one that you will want to experience over and over again.

"bandit Queen"

Blonde Sour With Peaches

7.25% ALC/VOL | AGED IN Oak Barrels 

MASON SNALE WORKS. SLOW BEER.

 The tale of The Bandit Queen is one of a rebel and an outlaw in the American Wild West. We like to believe that if The Bandit Queen was here today, that she would drink a far-out beer like the one you’re holding. This Blonde Sour with Fresh Peaches is a unique brew with rich flavors of freshly baked peach cobbler and homemade preserves. A subtle minerality and a refreshing dose of acidity, Bandit Queen is remarkably refreshing and in your face. Just like The Bandit Queen who continually pushed the bounds of what was acceptable, this beer pushes the envelope of the style. Only 1500 of this beer made it into bottles, be sure to cherish this release as it will be gone before you know it…

"benedict Cucumberbatch"

Cucumber Berliner Weisse

5.3% ALC/VOL | AGED IN Cutwater Gin Barrels

MASON SNALE WORKS. SLOW BEER.

Gin…  A spirit of much debate and love, that has captivated audiences worldwide for its nuanced aromatics, and complex herbaceous notes. What goes well with Gin you may ask? For that answer we take inspiration from a classic Gin cocktail; “The Gin Cooler.” The refreshing and crisp cucumber notes when added with gin make the perfect cocktail.  For this latest Snale Works release, we took inspiration from this classic combination, to brew “Benedict Cucumberbatch.” Benedict is a Cucumber Berliner Weisse that has been aged in Cutwater Barrel Rested Gin Barrels adding mellow botanical notes to this classic brew. Tart and Refreshing this beer emulates the classic cocktail that we have grown to love. 

 

 
 
 

"ELoise Woods"

BARREL FERMENTED BRETT IPA

6.95% ALC/VOL | AGED IN OAK BARRELS

MASON SNALE WORKS. SLOW BEER.

Brettanomyces make beer funky, not sour but amazingly and distinctly funky. Eloise Woods is our take on a 100% Barrel Fermentated Brett IPA. Dry hopped just before bottling, she is an elegant mistress. Both complex and intriguing, Eloise will give you a master class in the great depth that beers of this style can reach.
