Cookies & Cream Stout, a sweet, creamy beer is the latest offering in LaGrange, Georgia-based Wild Leap’s exclusive stout collection. Cookies & Cream is available for purchase in four-packs at local retailers.
Wild Leap says its Cookies & Cream offering is a “big, sweet milk stout brewed with cocoa, vanilla and lactose.” Crafted to taste like cookies and cream ice cream, this approach to beer is a style distinctive to the Wild Leap brand.
“Occasionally we like to design beers that reflect on my eight-plus years working in the ice cream industry,” said Wild Leap Chief Brewing Officer Chris Elliott. “One of my favorite flavors is Cookies n’ Cream, and our staff was really excited about the idea of designing a stout that tastes just like the ice cream.”
Wild Leap stouts are not just enjoyed during the cooler months. The Wild Leap mentality is about being offbeat and experimental.
“When people think ‘stout’ they may tend to think fall or winter. We don’t like to pigeon-hole beers that way, though,” said Anthony Rodriguez, Wild Leap CEO and co-founder. “The familiar, sweet taste of ice cream you get when drinking Cookies & Cream makes it a perfect stout for warmer months.”
Wild Leap says Cookies & Cream Stout tastes like vanilla ice cream and finishes with a chocolate cookie taste, and it is 10.5% ABV.
Voted America’s Best New Brewery of 2019 by USA Today, Wild Leap offers innovative and approachable craft beer. Its trademark IPAs and ales along with seasonal porters, stouts and Double IPAs have become favorites around Georgia.
