While many in the Yakima Valley will partake in the annual 'Red Wine and Chocolate' event this weekend, if you're anything like me, a good brew and a bag of cookies is a bit more affordable.

Undoubtedly you have been hit up recently to purchase Girl Scout cookies as part of their annual fundraising drive.  If so, the folks at Flying Dog Ales have taken the time to pair each one of the Girl Scout offerings with one of their ales.

As a 'Thin Mint' man myself and, as someone who has enjoyed a good porter or stout in the past, I just might have to try their suggestion.

Here are the rest of the pairings they came up with:

Trefoils with Pearl Necklace Oyster Stout (DD) 

The smooth butter and vanilla flavors from the shortbread are complimented by the dry chocolate and roast character in the beer.

Do-Si-Dos with Lucky SOB Irish Red

The sweet peanut butter filling and light graham cracker cookie are a perfect match for the rich caramel and toasty malt notes in Lucky SOB.

Samoas with Raging Bitch Belgian-Style IPA

The caramel coating of the cookie and caramel malt soothe the extreme hop character while the chocolate and coconut bring the Belgian fruity funk to life.

Tagalongs with Gonzo Imperial Porter

The one-two punch combination of peanut butter and chocolate is a knockout with Gonzo’s rich chocolate and nutty malt character.

Thin Mints with Kujo Imperial Coffee Stout (DD) 

Chocolate, mint, and robust coffee and chocolate malt notes created a peppermint mocha latte in your mouth.

Legend: Pairings marked with a (DD) are definitely dunkable.
