Just in case you somehow missed them in front of supermarkets, annoying account supervisor Chuck at your office or at your front door, Girl Scout Cookie Season has arrived. Through this annual tradition, Girl Scouts across the region learn valuable life skills, earn badges and generate work for local dentists. Once you’ve filled your cupboards with Thin Mints, Samoas or whichever cookies you prefer, you might be tempted to sit back and enjoy them with a nice, tall glass of milk. But here at Peaks and Pints we prefer pairing our cookies with Rainy Daze Brewing beers.
Thursday, Feb. 21, the Poulsbo brewery will celebrate the most delicious season of the year, when taste buds get to revel in the glory of Thin Mints, Shortbreads, Peanut Butter Patties and other Girl Scout cookies paired with Baltic Porter, Dukes Up Red, Sunrise Coffee Porter, Test Drive Amber, Goat Boater IPA and other Rainy Daze beers at Peaks and Pints bottle shop, taproom and restaurant in Tacoma’s Proctor District.
“It’s fun, and it’s tasty,” says Rainy Daze founder and head brewer Mike Montoney. “That’s what beer is supposed to be about anyway.”
Cookies will be paired with pints, snifters and tulips full of Rainy Daze deliciousness, as well as a five-beer, five-cookie flight option.
Like so many things in life, Girl Scout cookies are a fleeting pleasure. They’ll only be available for a short, period of time. Then you’ll have to resort to black-market eBay buying. Feb. 21 is your chance to taste most of the Girl Scout Cookies in one sitting.
SCOUTS HONOR: GIRL SCOUT COOKIES PAIRED WITH RAINY DAZE BEERS, 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 21, Peaks and Pints, 3816 N. 26th St., Basecamp Proctor, Tacoma, no cover
