Following our recent recipe swap and collab with Iechyd Da Brewing Co quite a few people have been wondering what Breakfast Cookies are and how the beer got its name. We asked Summer Lewis of Iechyd a Brewing Co how Breakfast Cookies came about and here is the story:
Everyone always asks how Breakfast Cookies got its name – well the story is kinda funny and revealing. When we were picking out floor tile for the pub, Chip’s mom was shopping with us. We were chit-chatting about what was on her dance card for the rest of the day. She said that her “breakfast cookies” were on sale, so she was running to the market. We thought she meant a new type of cereal bar or something nutritious, so we asked further. She said “Oh NO! It’s just pre-made chocolate chip cookie dough that I break apart and pop in the oven every morning!” We were shocked to find out that the mom who made you clean your plate now eats chocolate chip cookies every day for breakfast since Chip is grown and out of the house! We almost died laughing right there in the rows of tile. The name came first and we built a recipe to match that tastes like dipping a chocolate chip cookie into a cup of coffee. It was meant to be a one-off brew, but is now one of our most requested seasonal beers. Thanks, mom!
