Our annual Girl Scout cookie and beer pairing event is Monday, March 30th, at Theater on the Lake yet again! Chef Cleetus Friedman is back just for us! He’ll be preparing four delicious tasting courses using Girl Scout Cookies, both savory and sweet, and pairing them with our favorite thing ever—beer. Plus we’ll get a welcome beer from our friends at Revolution Brewing!
As always this is one of our only co-ed events of the year. You can buy up to 6 tickets together—so plan ahead now and buy for your whole group! If you’d like to purchase separately but sit together, please send us an email to give us a heads up.
Tickets for the four course tasting menu and beer pairing (with tax and tip included in the ticket price) are $55 each.
Meet us again in the Walker’s Point neighborhood tonight, Wednesday, March 11 at 6:00 p.m. this time gathering at Fuel Cafe 5th Street and Proximity Malt for our March meeting. This month we will be learning all about grains and the malting process with local craft malting company, Proximity Malt. They will talk to us about their process and how it helps to make the beer and spirits we love.
Proximity Malt does not serve beer. We will be meeting ahead of the tour at Fuel Cafe, next door, for those who’d like an opportunity for a beverage and/or a snack before the main event. The group will walk over to Proximity Malt at 7:00 p.m. for the facility tour.
Proximity Malt is located at 644 S 5th St, right on the #80 MCTS bus route or a short walkable distance from the #19, #15 and Green Line routes. There is metered street parking available, so plan a few minutes into your travel to find parking, if you’re driving over.
