Palate Pleasers ‘Wildcat Blend’ Coffee and ‘O Davidson Lager’ In Stores Now

Davidson College Coffee

The fine taste of Davidson College is headed to your coffee cup and pint glass. Davidson worked with two longstanding partners to produce “Wildcat Blend” coffee and “O Davidson Lager.” 

Wildcat Blend is produced by Summit Coffee Co., an alum-owned and operated company that includes Summit Outpost on campus and their flagship store on Main Street. The ‘Cats-themed java is—or soon will be—available at the College Store and on the store’s website. Wildcat Blend offers a medium roast blend with sweet notes of chocolate and cherry. Summit’s team works to source its coffee through sustainable relationships; and, with Wildcat Blend, emphasized working through women coffee producers growing high quality products. 

O Davidson Lager salutes the college and the fight song for which the beer is named. It serves up straight forward malt and hop bill with a crisp finish and a slight and subtle complexity. Charlotte’s NoDa Brewing Co. developed the new brew, building on the college’s partnership, which included NoDa supplying refreshments at the Fast Break Club, Gridiron Club and other athletics celebrations. O Davidson is available at retailers and restaurants served by NoDa in and around Davidson.  

The ideas for both drinks grew out of the relationships that Davidson’s Athletics and College Relations teams developed with the two businesses, and the branding and label were designed by the College Communications team.
