Girl Scout Cookies & Summit Beer – An Iconic Duo

It’s everyone’s favorite season, and no, we’re not talking about winter. We’re talking about COOKIE SEASON! At Summit Brewing, we’re always looking for new ways to enhance the flavor experience of our beers. And what better way to do that than pairing our brews with everyone’s favorite cookies – Girl Scout Cookies! Whether you’re a fan of the rich and malty Winter Ale or the hoppy and refreshing Saga Hazy IPA, there’s a Summit beer that will perfectly complement the unique flavors of each cookie type. So, sit back, relax, and get ready to indulge in the ultimate taste sensation – a Summit beer and Girl Scout Cookie pairing!

First, you have to try our Extra Pale Ale with some Girl Scout Caramel Chocolate Chip cookies – it’s a match made in heaven! The beer’s hoppy bitterness balances the sweetness of the cookies, and its light maltiness is super refreshing. Plus, the caramel notes in the beer and the chocolate chips in the cookies create a flavor explosion

If you’re a fan of rich, chocolatey flavors, then you’re going to love pairing our Great Northern Porter with some iconic Thin Mint cookies. The smooth, full-bodied taste of the porter perfectly complements the crunchy, minty cookies. The robustness of the beer also helps to balance out the sweetness of the cookies, making for a truly satisfying and indulgent pairing. If you’re looking for a delicious dessert treat, this combination is definitely worth a try!

Finally, our Saga Imperial IPA’s bold and hoppy flavor perfectly balances the sweet and rich taste of Caramel De-Lites cookies. The beer’s citrusy notes complement the caramel and coconut flavors of the cookie, while its bitterness helps to cut through the cookie’s richness, leaving a refreshing aftertaste. The combination of Saga Imperial IPA and Caramel De-Lites makes for a delightful and satisfying indulgence.

Now, we can definitely go on and on with each beer and their pairing, but let’s be honest: you are craving Girl Scout cookies and some Summit beer now, and reading each pairing seems unlikely. So please refer to our super helpful, very detailed cookie and beer-craving mania-reducing graphic showcasing every pairing for every one of our great-tasting beers.

Now that we have you craving some Girl Scout Cookies and Summit beer, we have some good news on how you can act on those cravings. We’ll have some Girl Scouts in the Summit Ratskeller to sell some cookies so you can try every pairing on-site with a fresh pint! Stop in on 2/29, 3/2, 3/8, and 3/9 to grab a box, or two…. or twelve! Cheers!
