Logboat Brewing Company | Snapper

May 15, 2017 |

I first discovered Logboat Brewing two years ago, about one year into their existence. If memory serves, it was the Centennial Beer Festival in St. Louis and I walked away after sampling Snapper thinking it was one of  finest IPAs I’d had in long time. I made a mental note to remember that something very exciting was going on in Columbia, Missouri with this new brewery “LongBoat.”

Soon, I was bringing home Snapper as my go-to IPA as well as its American cousin Lookout. After a few closer looks at the cans, I finally realized they were not Longboat but Logboat and after a good chuckle at myself, I knew I had found something special.

You know that guy from college that was, like, a champion beer drinker? You know, the guy who, no matter how you trained, prepared, or strategized, could single-handedly win Beer Olympics on his own – who you watched in awe as he made his way through a case of Natty completely unfazed?

ABV: 5.6% | IBU: 11

Being that it’s unseasonably chilly in Chicago this week, the weather has me excited for fall. Don’t get me wrong, I love summer.

Fall welcomes back more spiced beer varieties, fruit inspired beers and a personal favorite—pumpkin ales!
