Odd Side Ales Snozzberries Beer Review

“Wanna change the world? There's nothing to it.”

Brewery: Odd Side Ales
Style: Wit IPA With Cherries Added
ABV: 6.5%
8 Stars

In honor of Gene Wilder, I grabbed a bottle of Snozzberries brewed by Odd Side Ales. As he once said in Blazing Saddles “You’ve got to remember that these are just simple farmers. These are people of the land. The common clay of the new West. You know… morons.”

Kind of a weird color, this one. It was a deeper red-brown than I expected and there was not a lot of foam. Not what I was expecting but not terrible either. It smells like an IPA!

The vast majority of taste in this beer is definitely a wit IPA. There are tastes of cherry tartness around the edges but there isn’t much there, cherry-wise. It floats over top just out of reach. It’s the curly lines that hover just outside of your eyesight. You know it’s there, every once in awhile you catch a glimpse but it’s just not on full display. This will really work for people looking for a gently fruited beer.

I was thinking about giving this beer a seven. I was told on the bottle that there would be cherries. I felt as though there were not enough cherries and therefore I threw a review tantrum. There was much wailing and gnashing of teeth but the more I drank, the more I enjoyed it. It grew on me. It grew to an eight. Not quite a golden ticket but pretty close.

A craft beer fan since 19, used to look for your non-regular beers on frequent trips to downtown Windsor with friends, at 21 Ken basically took over an entire refrigerator with monthly visits to Merchants. With 5 years of podcasting prior, Ken decided to create the brand and show Better on Draft in the spring of 2015, and began creating his dream of a beer-centric website that wasn't too full of itself. He now runs the board and does a lot of the back office stuff while the show goes on, keeping everyone in line, and the beer flowing!


  1. How timely! I loves me some OddSide, I’ll give this one a try if I see it around and pour a bit on the ground for my homie, Gene. RIP
