When Cigar City Brewing was trying to come up for an idea for a new beer they asked the question, “What if a beer tasted like an oatmeal raisin cookie?”
In 2010 the brewery answered the question with the release of Oatmeal Raisin Cookie, a beer that showcases flavors of caramel, toffee and chocolate. It was released again in cans in 2016 and will return next month.
Oatmeal Raisin Cookie is a 5.5 percent ABV brown ale that uses its Maduro, an English-style brown ale as a base, and is then brewed with raisins, lactose and cinnamon.
According to the brewery’s sales sheet, Oatmeal Raisin Cookie will be released in 12-ounce cans from April through May.
