In Wisconsin, we pair beer with just about anything and everything — including Girl Scout Cookies.
The Brass Tap, 7808 W. Layton Ave., Greenfield, is hosting a Girl Scout Cookie and Beer Pairing from 5 to 10 p.m. March 10-11.
"Beer, traditionally, you don't think of it as a pairing thing," said Brass Tap owner Nick Marking. "But, it works very, very well with a lot of different foods, especially sweet items."
For the pairing, a flight of four 5-ounce beers will be matched with four types of cookies for $20.
The pairings are Thanks-A-Lot cookies with Door County Bake Sale Brown Ale, Peanut Butter Patties with Shortfuse Peanut Butter Stout, Caramel deLites with Southern Tier Nitro Hot Chocolate, and Thin Mints with Lions Tail Chocolate Raspberry Porter.
This is the sixth year The Brass Tap is putting on the pairing.
"We're always looking for different and interesting beer pairings," Marking said. "We were like, 'Girl Scout Cookies come out around this time of year, why not give it a whirl and see if it'll stick?' And it has."
It's now one of the bar's most popular events, he said.
In the past, the pairing was done on one day. But after having more than 100 attendees last year, a second day was added.
