It’s Girl Scout Cookie season! Did you know the Girl Scouts have been selling their delicious cookies since 1917? You might be wondering how this could have anything to do with entertaining or wine & beer? Well, pairing wine & beer with Girl Scout Cookies is a new trend taking over the bar and brewery scene.
