Born out of a discussion around a roaring fire, brewer Tom Price mentioned that his friend’s bakery made some of the best oatmeal cookies. The conversation then turned to how good oatmeal cookies are with beer. (And they are if you haven’t tried them. Oatmeal cookies and Terrapin’s Wake & Bake? DAMN GOOD.) In the end, the fireside round table attendees were talking about how good oatmeal cookies would be IN beer. Like I just mentioned, Terrapin’s Wake & Bake uses oatmeal, as does Founder’s Breakfast Stout, Breckenridge Oatmeal, Wolaver’s Oatmeal, & Sam Smith’s. It’s tasty, and adds depth to a stout/porter.
Tom Price’s friends at Feed Your Soul Bakery in Jersey City, NJ makes the oatmeal cookies in which he raves. After some market research (read: eating cookies,) Cookie Jar Porter was brewed with floor-malted barley malt, golden oats, raisins, brown sugar, honey, vanilla beans and a subtle dash of spice. That’s not all. Coffee, chocolate, and caramel flavors are thrown in for added depth and complexity. Each of these flavors are prevalent, its a fun beer to drink and sort out on your palette.
