Event description


Cookie Break!

One thing we love about February (in addition to watching Groundhog’s Day with Bill Murray) is those adorable little Girl Scouts summon the Cookie Gods and bring forth sugary treat for all to feast upon thus resulting in broken New Year’s promises of eating healthy and losing weight, but c’mon, it’s for a good cause!

Since we’re all about beer, and we do love sugar, we thought, “Hey, why not do a Girl Scout cookie and beer pairing?!” So we wrangled in 3 Sheeps Brewing because frankly, they have an amazing selection of beers that have remarkable flavor profiles. So we all sat down, paired up some beer with some cookies, and placed our mega cookie order with our local Girl Scout troop.
