Welcome to the best beer featured on We Like Tall Boys. WE’VE BEEN BLESST. (*This is Erin’s favorite beer. Natalie has yet to review hers.)

My favorite beer of all time is the Montucky Cold Snack. Why you ask? There are many reasons.

  1. The name is stellar. “Montucky” is a slang term for Montana, where this beer is distributed. A “Cold Snack” is a beer. Obviously.
  2. I love what they stand for! The Cold Snack website says that this beer is for badass do-gooders. This is what I strive to be. 8% of sales go to local causes in Montana, which is dope!
  3. The can is amazing. The design was the first thing that drove me toward Montuckies, with a horse galloping across a mountain range with a sorta rainbow behind it. MAJESTIC.

Let’s dive into it, shall we?

This is a picture from 3 years ago when I first discovered Montucky Cold Snacks in Portland, OR. Peep the attempt at nail polish.

Beer name: Montucky Cold Snack

City and country of origin: Brewed in Wisconsin (cuz it was cheaper to brew it there, which I respect), but the company is based out of Bozeman, Montana, USA. *Fun fact: My parents spend a quarter of each year in Bozeman to go fly fishing in Yellowstone National Park!*

Year created: 2011

ABV: 4.0%

Cost: $7.99 for a 6-pack of tall boys


TASTE: You can have a Cold Snack LEGIT anytime. It’s a light and tasty beer that satisfies in any situation and in any weather. The Cold Snack is a refreshingly chill lager that reminds me slightly of PBR’s charm without being as sweet.

Even though it is a light beer, the body is medium so it may fill you up, especially if you are having a tall boy.

How do I feel? Peeps always feel good when they have a Cold Snack. I mean, look at the company’s Instagram. My heart is very warm as I share some Snacks with my film crew that I’ll be working with on a music video this weekend. This is the ideal fun-time beer. If a reliable friend could be a beer, it’d be a Montucky Cold Snack.

When to drink a Montucky Cold Snack: Whether you’re going out skiing or sitting inside eating pizza, pop open a Cold Snack if you want a smile on your face, y’all. As I write this I have a can in my backpack and a few cans in my fridge at work. Keeping the homies around.

This is an approachable and light-hearted beer for all activities. Cold Snacks have spirit and enthusiasm. And so do I for this brew.

Overall rating: 10/10. CUE THE FIREWORKS.

My name is Erin and I approve the Montucky Cold Snack.
