Southern Tier Brewing Co Launches "Girl Scout Cookies' Themed Beer

Earlier this week it was announced that New York’s Southern Tier brewery, is releasing a beer flavored with Girl Scout Cookies.Mike Pomranz of FoodAndWine.com reports:
A official stamp of approval from the Scouts is probably out of the question (for obvious reasons), that doesn’t mean a brewery can’t take a little inspiration from the girls’ iconic Thin Mints to whip up a brew. Hitting shelves soon, Southern Tier Thick Mint seems to be the closest you’ll come to a Thin Mint/stout mashup.New York’s Southern Tier Brewing Company has a long history of brewing beers that are more fit for dessert than for after a hot day of mowing your lawn. Thick Mint – brewed with cocoa nibs and mint – is being added to the brewery’s “Blackwater Series” which is comprised of massive 10 percent ABV Imperial Stouts with names like Choklat, Crème Brulee and Salted Caramel – and featuring the big flavors and luscious mouthfeels to match. According to its label, Thin Mint is headed down a similar path. “We made big ways when we introduced Choklat in 2007,” the bottle reads. “Since then, our affection for decadent, flavorful, dessert-like beers and a zeal to venture into the far corners of the flavor world, have been the drivers in our endless quest to brew the perfect indulgence.” via FoodandWine.com
