Beer and Cookies

a Thirsty Monk at Bruisin' AlesJulie at Bruisin' Ales sent me news of this promotion that she has planned for today at her beer store in Asheville, North Carolina: Beer and cookies.

That's right. She's pairing beers with cookies.

The beers are from Wyerbacher of Easton, Pennsylvania; the cookies from Sugar Momma's -- and you have to love that name -- of Asheville.

In case you can't get to Julie's shop today, here's her program. Try it at home with locally-baked cookies.

  • Blanche (Witbier) with Oatmeal Cranberry White Chocolate Cookie
  • Heresy (Oak-aged Imperial Stout) with Banana Maple Walnut Cookie
  • QUAD (Belgian-style Quadruple) with Oatmeal Raisin Cookie
  • Blasphemy (Oak-aged QUAD) with Almond Date Cookie
This is indeed thinking out of the (cookie) box.

  1. Thanks to your post, I was led to Bruisin' Ales just last week. I picked up a mix of bombers and a mixed six of wonderfully dark Duck Rabbit.
