Terrapin's French Toasted W-n-B Coffee Oatmeal Imperial Stout
French Toasted W-n-B Coffee Oatmeal Imperial Stout brewed by Terrapin Beer Company
Stout Season gets its cherry on top from Terrapin Beer Co. with the release
of French Toasted W-n-B Coffee Oatmeal Imperial Stout, the fifth brew in the
company's Reserve Series line.
French Toasted W-n-B brings the beer to the breakfast table by starting with
the rich coffee aroma found in Monster favorite W-n-B, then layering in a
luscious blend of maple, cinnamon, and vanilla notes. As in all previous
iterations of W-n-B, Terrapin sourced the coffee used in French Toasted
W-n-B from Athens coffee roaster Jittery Joe's.
French Toasted W-n-B Label
Breakfast in a bottle returns this year with one of our favorite morning time
treats. "French Toasted W-n-B" combines big maple syrup notes, fresh coffee, and
hints of vanilla and cinnamon to stand out among ordinary Imperial Stouts. With
this much decadence packing into one bottle, this beer will get you back to the
table for another round.
Terrapin Beer Company
Terrapin Beer Company was founded by Brian "Spike" Buckowski and John Cochran.
The two men actually wanted to develop their own brewery, in 1998, before they
had their own beer. After finally developing a beer the two were contemplating
names when Buckowski, a Grateful Dead fan, mentioned Terrapin. The name comes
from "Terrapin Station," which is a Grateful Dead album. After three years of
talking to bankers and investors to no avail, Spike and John realized the only
way to start Terrapin Beer Company was to begin as a contract brewery.
It released its first beer, the Terrapin Rye Pale Ale, in Spring 2002 at the
Classic City Brewfest. Six months later this beer, which was sold only in
Athens, Georgia, was awarded the American Pale Ale Gold Medal at the 2002 Great
American Beer Festival. With demand for Terrapin growing daily, the Rye Pale Ale
was soon made available to beer fans in Atlanta, Georgia as well. Soon after,
Terrapin was chosen by producers of "Blue Ribbon" on Turner South to be featured
on a TV special about breweries in the South. The viewers of this show voted
Terrapin as the Best Brewery in the Southeast by an overwhelming margin of 72%.
When a Georgia state law capping beers at 6% alcohol was overturned in 2004,
Spike and John turned their attention to creating a line of seasonal beers that
pushed the envelope of traditional brewing. It was this desire to challenge the
palates of beer drinkers everywhere that led to the creation of the Monster Beer
Tour. The seasonal brews consist of Big Hoppy Monster, Wake-n-Bake Coffee
Oatmeal Imperial Stout, Rye Squared, and All-American Imperial Pilsner.
Terrapin's brewery in Athens, GA is and open for tours. Located at 265 Newton
Bridge Rd. in Athens, GA, the new brewery is 45,000 square feet. Tours are
Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays 5:30-7:30.
