Girl Scout Season officially came to an end on Sunday — there, there. It's gonna be OK, because we've got word of something even better — Girl Scout Cookie-inspired beers! Finally, we can feel guilty about finishing off an entire keg of Thin Mint beer while watching Burning Love! Evening plans, done and doner.
There aren't any real cookies in the five beers (nor any real Girl Scouts), but the brewing duo echoed the flavors of the nostalgic treats in peppermint porter (Thin Mints), peanut butter cream ale (Do-si-dos), shortbread golden ale (Trefoils), salted chocolate stout with peanut butter (Peanut Butter Patties), and a Belgian dubbel with coconut and cocoa nibs (Samoas).
We have it on good authority that the Samoas Belgian dubbel is the debomb, but the Thin Mint one might taste a touch like toothpaste. That's alright — brushing your teeth is cool! (I'm watching a LOT of Yo Gabba Gabba with my niece.)
Released last friday by Cevercería de MateVeza in San Francisco's Mission district, there's a very limited supply of each — and when it's gone, it's gone. Best part? Each beer is served with its corresponding cookie. How fucking rad is that?! Let this indecent marriage of awesome drunken fatness to the noble Girl Scouts carry us through to the 2014 cookie season!
