Late winter can be a dreary time for many people. Shorter days, colder temperatures and less sunshine could leave you feeling a little blue. Although there are always fun events around town, not all of them will help you overcome the mid-winter blahs. Thankfully, Thorn Street Brewing has a clever solution that combines everyone’s favorite treats: cookies and beer!
One of the best things about late winter and early spring is the seasonable availability of Girl Scout cookies. Those with a serious sweet tooth often wait months for their next fix or even stock their freezers with enough of those crave-able cookies to get through the dry months. Now, thanks to Thorn Street Brewing, you can find the ideal beers to enjoy with your favorite kinds of Girl Scout Cookies.
Cookies and Beer Are a Perfect Combination
Thorn Street Brewing is locally loved for their line-up of over 30 beers, with 15 rotating options on tap at any given time. Now, you have a chance to try four carefully selected five-ounce samples, each paired with a different Girl Scout Cookie. At only $12 per person, that’s basically a flight of beers with a great cross-selection of sweet cookies as well.
If the image on the event page is any indication, they will be offering four of the most popular Girl Scout Cookies: Thin Mints, Samoas/Carmel DeLites, Shortbreads/Trefoils and Peanut Butter Patties/ Tagalongs. For those unfamiliar with the various Girl Scout cookies, that means a chocolate mint cookie; a caramel, chocolate and coconut cookie; a shortbread/butter cookie; and a chocolate peanut butter cookie. Right now, one can only guess which beers are included, but these are sure to be fun and flavorful events.
Tickets for the North Park event on January 30 are available online here, while tickets for the Barrio Logan event on February 3 are available here. Securing a place now is a good idea, as tickets may very well sell out before the day of the pairing.
