FORT COLLINS, CO — Funkwerks has a new mixed 12-pack out that includes Saison, Raspberry Provincial, and two limited, seasonal offerings: White and Boysenberry Provincial. Winky's Snack Pack was created to give beer lovers a taste of what Funkwerks is all about. In this case you get two sessionable, tart ales (Raspberry and Boysenberry) and two crisp, bright Belgian style ales (Saison and White).
Winky's Snack Packs are available at Funkwerks' Fort Collins tasting room and at select liquor stores in Colorado, Arizona, Texas, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Minnesota. Here are the specs on each of the beers:
SAISON, Belgian-Style Ale • 6.8%
It wouldn’t be a Funkwerks mixed 12 pack without their famed Saison. Well, it would be, but we’re really glad it’s included. The beer that started it all, Saison was born from backyard test batches and eventually grew into the Great American Beer Festival® Gold Medal-winner you taste today. The house yeast used is the star ingredient imparting light spicy notes of pepper, ginger and refreshing fruit flavors of tangerine, pare, and passion fruit.
RASPBERRY PROVINCIAL, Sour Ale Brewed with Raspberries • 4.2%
This Great American Beer Festival® -winning beer has generous amounts of raspberries added after fermentation. Tart and refreshing, Funkwerks’ Raspberry Provincial packs a strong citrusy berry aroma of tart raspberries and lemon zest with a sweet, balanced finish. Raspberry was the first of the Funkwerks Provincial series and has since been followed by an array of one-off fruited variants, including Apricot, Blueberry, and Pineapple Provincial.
BOYSENBERRY PROVINCIAL, Sour Ale Brewed with Boysenberries • 4.2%
New for 2018, Funkwerks continues their Provincial series with this purple-hued beauty. A cross between raspberries and blackberries, boysenberries provide a sweet yet tart flavor with juicy aroma to this light, bright, and tart sour ale. Boysenberry Provisional uses a hefty dose of fresh puree during fermentation to capture its juicy flavors and transport drinkers to a sunny day of berry picking on the farm. Winky's Snack Packs are the only option for purchasing packaged Boysenberry Provincial— it is not available in 6-packs.
WHITE, Belgian-Style White Ale • 4.9%
Refreshing, crisp, and available only in Winky’s Snack Pack. This Belgian White uses ample amounts of wheat along with raw oats for a brilliant opaque body, creamy white head, and a smooth mouthfeel while maintaining a dry finish. Delicately spiced with orange zest, coriander, and chamomile to support the character of the Belgian yeast, this brew is the perfect thirst-quencher for the summer and the perfect addition to Winky’s Snack Pack.

We're in awe at the size of this Triple NEIPA -- #AbsoluteUnit. The most bodacious entry yet in our #CovalentBond canned collaboration series, Absolute Unit was benched and brewed with the party wizards down at Modern Times Beer!
We've bulked up this beast with Mosaic, El Dorado, and Galaxy hops all the way through its production, beginning with an intense dry-hopping right at knockout. The resulting liquid explodes with overripe tropical fruit -- deep papaya and guava with a bite of bitter pineapple, and a finishing flex of subtle candied orange sweetness. Deep orange in hue with a silky-soft texture, this legend packs a formidable 10% ABV on an absolutely massive body.
