Cookies! Let's pair them with beer!

In case you haven't already heard, Girl Scout Cookies went on sale yesterday. Yes, this information was somehow trumped by the opening ceremonies of the Sochi Olympics - for reasons I will never understand as there is a much higher chance of all of us enjoying a Thin Mint while its icy cold outside than ice luging. At best, we're home eating Thin Mints and watching the scandalous Olympics. So I still ask, why didn't this make national news? Or why aren't Girl Scout Cookies available year round? Hmmm... life's mysteries.

Anyway, with cookie excitement I stumbled upon this great blog post about Beer Pairings for Girl Scout Cookies and, since we are so in love with Ninkasi over here at TWIF, I started wondering what wonderful duo we would pair. After deliberation I would like to introduce you to the official pairing of TWIF:

Ninkasi Oatis Oatmeal Stout + Shortbread Cookies (sometimes called Trefoils but that was another debate)

Ninkasi Oatis Oatmeal Stout + Shortbread Cookies (sometimes called Trefoils but that was another debate)

Two close runners up were:

Ninkasi Vanilla Oatis Stout + Thin Mints

and

Ninkasi Believe Double Red Ale + Samoas (also called Caramel Delights)
