SAN DIEGO, Calif.– February 9th, 2021 – Motivated to find a better way to enjoy Girl Scout Cookies, our Vice President of Business Development, Ray Price and his family carefully curated a pairing of America's favorite cookies with craft beer from around the country.
Our employees truly enjoyed this treat during our last Parking Lot Party (socially distanced, of course) in February. Although another excuse is not needed for over-indulging on Girl Scout cookies once a year, we hope you enjoy these recommendations!
Thin Mints + Dry Stout
In style, as in beer pairing, avoid being too “matchy-matchy.” However, the dark chocolatey wafer character shared in a stout and a Thin Mint cookie work so well to elevate the cooling of mint that it is a pairing taboo we’re willing to risk. It’s an all-black tux with a cool green pocket square

Samoas + German-Style Doppelbock
A cookie with so much going on for it, like the Somoas’s toasted coconut, caramel and garnish of chocolate, needs a pairing to match the cookie’s intensity. Aim for a strong, malty doppelbock that lends complimentary flavors and a warming character that will help emulsify even the ooey-gooiest caramel.

Tagalongs + Belgian-style Quadrupel
All of that peanut butter will quickly coat your mouth. Instead of reaching for milk, pop the top on a Belgian-style quad, strong enough to cut through the nut butter and plenty of complex, fruity yeast notes to transform this into a fun play on peanut butter and jelly.

Lemon Ups + Berliner-style Weisse
The game plan of sweet and sour should not be difficult for anyone to understand. You’re hoping for the cookie and wheat to offer a solid backdrop for the lemon and bright acidity to shoot around on your palate like the lasers in your 1st-grade school picture.
