The local council of the Girl Scouts is hoping grown ups that like their annual sweet treats will also be game to pair their cookies with something a little stronger.

The Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways Council is hosting something they’re calling “Cookies Untapped.” It’s their first-ever cookies and beer tasting fundraiser.

Organizers say guests can sample all ten cookie varieties available through the NYPENN Pathways Council, including the brand-new Raspberry Rally cookie before they can even be ordered this coming January.

Each Girl Scout cookie will be paired with a New York State craft beer selected by a New York craft beer brewer.

Doors open and a silent auction begins at 5:30. The pouring starts at 6 p.m.

In addition to the tasting tickets, the price of admission includes a tote bag, collectible glass, light fare and live music.  There will also be a cash bar if someone fancies something other than beer with their cookies.

The hotel is also offering accommodations at a discount rate for guests who don’t want to travel.  Reservations can be made by calling 315-701-4312 and mention code “Girl Scouts Untapped.”

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
