Back in April of 2017, I started a new series of stories I call, “Beers I Love,” and I kicked it off with the story about Logboat Brewing’s Snapper. I just love this beer, so when I was scrolling through Twitter yesterday and I stumbled on the following tweet, I just knew I had to spread the word as well as plan a trip to Columbia, Missouri.
There isn’t very much, but this is happening next week. Stay tuned for more info ??pic.twitter.com/I8XVOtKBiT

So, a quick email later, here’s the story behind what I assume will be one fricking delicious variant.
“Sometimes we like to play around with different versions of our core beers,” said brewer Judson Ball. “Pineapple Snapper has by far been the most popular and requested variant we’ve done.” But this is the first time Logboat has put this brew in cans. The actual release info is still coming together, but it will be a tap room only release and a limited one at that, with only 80 cases brewed.
The beer still pours a hazy gold, the color isn’t much different from the original Snapper.
On the nose, you’ll get a nice dose of tropical fruit, pine, citrus and PINEAPPLE
On the tongue, you’ll get all the same and more. Pineapple, grapefruit, pine, and peach.
