Cookies + Beer = Some Really Rich Girl Scouts / by Brian Maschino

Starting Sunday, Jan. 29, the 3rd annual Girl Scout Cookie and Beer Pairing Flight has been drawing in beer-guzzling cookie monsters to LUCK at Trinity Groves.

Been working on a video piece about this event, what it means to the business and the Girl Scouts this goes to support, as well as the local beer pairings. Been pretty cool, and the young scouts I've gotten to meet are fantastically brilliant (no photos here, but plenty of video; and one of the girls legitimately thought the adults were trying their cookies with root beer).

Here are the pairings they decided to go with:

  1. Thin Mints w/ Armadillo Ale Work's Quakertown Stout
  2. Samoas w/ The Manhattan Project Beer Company's Inception Belgian Brown Ale
  3. Savannah Smiles w/ Legal Draft Beer Co.'s Hung Jury Hefeweizen
  4. Smores w/ HopFusion Ale Works' Feisty Blonde

Here's a selection of stills I managed to grab in between shoots:
