Het recept voor KoekeDam werd voor het eerst ontwikkeld in 2011. Aanleiding was de creatie van een bier ter gelegenheid van de Turnhout 2012 festiviteiten. Het origineel recept bevatte Amarillo- hop. Maar omdat deze anno 2012 heel schaars was, werd geopteerd voor Cascade hop. Deze laatste geeft een citrus aroma. Dit aangepast recept werd gebruikt voor de Turnhoutse Patriot. Omdat we in 2014 nog een dame mistte in onze "grote straat" en nog geen ruitensymbool hadden in ons gamma, lag de keuze voor handen: KoekeDam.
