Girl Scout cookies + craft beer = Cookies on Tap

Mike Hess Brewing, Stone Brewing and AleSmith Brewing Company will partner with Girl Scouts San Diego for the third annual Cookies on Tap

February 23, 2017

Got milk? Who cares! It's Girl Scout Cookie season and it's ALWAYS craft beer season in San Diego.

And that's what Cookies on Tap is all about -- pairing craft beer with America's favorite cookies! Mike Hess Brewing, Stone Brewing and AleSmith Brewing Company will partner with Girl Scouts San Diego for the third annual Cookies on Tap event (for adults only!) during National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend. That's this weekend, Friday February 24th - Sunday February 26th!

Flights will be priced at $15 for five Girl Scout Cookies and five beers.

The participating brewers will donate a portion of the Cookies on Tap proceeds to Girl Scouts San Diego for programs, financial assistance, and Operation Thin MintSM, a local Girl Scout program that sends “a taste of home and a note to show we care” to deployed military troops. Since Operation Thin MintSM originated here in 2002, generous San Diegans have donated more than 2.7 million boxes of Girl Scout Cookies to U.S. service members around the world. Cookies on Tap customers will have an opportunity to write notes of support to accompany the cookies overseas.
