I tweeted at Pints and Panels today to see if there were any Girl Scout Cookie and Beer Pairings to recommend - and it’s coming in March! I’ll do my best to keep you informed as my cookies just dropped and I might try some pairings as I have heard Samoas pair well with a Brown Ale, S'mores with a Peanut Butter Chocolate Stout, and Shortbread aka Trefoil with Sours or Pale Ales - but I have not tried myself yet. If you have some good pairings, let me know on Twitter https://twitter.com/The_Boozebuddy

Anyway - on to the stories - which prompted this pairing to begin with! Snacks are good, beer is good - but some complement each other really well. So get your game face on for this weekend and if you don’t have good recipes yet for your Super party get things moving. From Pretzels, Spinach dip, and wings to Maibock, Stouts, and Saisons it’s going to help you really enjoy the day - whether or not your team pulls through or isn’t in the game. https://food52.com/blog/15710-10-beer-and-food-pairings-for-the-big-game

The next one is a bit of a Valentine’s pairing, but for those who just aren’t into the wines. This one is for the Scotch and chocolate lovers - a wonderful level of indulgence that makes my mouth water just thinking about it! This is a bit of an old list - but I couldn’t find one that went across several brands and types that was updated and, honestly, this one just seems like it’s so much more of a complete list.

And now for something completely different - The University of Southern Maine (USM) Foundation has received a $100,000 gift from Maine Beer Company to create a unique Brewing Up Opportunity Internship & Scholarship Fund. The gift establishes a pilot program for USM students that includes a paid internship with Maine Beer Company and a scholarship award of up to $5,000 per academic year upon completion of the internship. The program’s goal is to promote diversity and inclusion within the craft beverage industry by providing access to education, on-the-job training, and mentoring to help develop a new generation of beer industry professionals. That’s verbatim from the press release you can read at https://usm.maine.edu/publicaffairs/maine-beer-company-gift-creates-brewing-opportunity-program-usm

Next Time: Tomorrow we’ll go Another Round with the Eco-Friendly Beer Drinker - make sure to tune in! I also release the Another Round editions earlier than the weekday editions!
