Want to drink a beverage that smells like coffee, tastes like maple syrup and goes down smooth?

Wolf’s Ridge Brewing, 215 N. Fourth St., Columbus, accomplished that and more with its “All the Breakfast” Imperial cream ale.

Wolf’s Ridge was the fourth stop on the #ThisWeekBreweryTour for ThisWeek staffers.

As one of about 20 beers Wolf’s Ridge keeps on tap, head brewer Chris Davison wanted to use rich ingredients to infuse the beer with that morning staple flavor, he said.

“I started with cereal elements – there’s rice, there’s corn, there’s wheat,” Davison said. “We add about 40 gallons of Ohio maple syrup to this beer, and then after it’s done fermenting, we add orange peel, vanilla bean, cacao nibs, One Line (brand) coffee ... toasted coconut and cinnamon.”

In less than a month, four more tanks will be installed at Wolf’s Ridge to allow the brewers to make even more experimental beer, Davison said.

In addition to the unique beers, Wolf’s Ridge uses barrels that previously were used to age sherry, bourbon and other spirits for the brewery’s sour beers, Davison said.

Although the brewery shares the name and building with the Wolf’s Ridge Brewing restaurant, the two entities have separate menus and entrances.
