Life lessons and thinking outside the (cookie) box

Over the past year, The Brewmaster’s Taproom in Renton, Washington has learned to think outside the box. Now they are helping teach the local Girl Scouts Troop how to think outside the cookie box. This is the fifth year in a row that the family-friendly beer bar and bottleshop has hosted a beer and cookie pairing event to support Girl Stouts Troop #41064.

The beer and cookie event runs all month at The Brewmaster’s Taproom. Of course, things are a bit different this year, but the fact that you can enjoy Girl Scouts Cookies and beers remains the same.

“In normal times, we do one day in March with a flight of beers paired with Girl Scout Cookies for everyone to enjoy together while the troop walks around and explains the different causes they are raising funds for through cookie sales,” Explains Marley Rall, owner of The Brewmaster’s Taproom. “It’s all about the girls growing and learning lifelong skills. We didn’t want them to lose that, so we sat down (via Zoom) and brainstormed how we could still make this happen.”

Obviously, the girls do not get to experience the beer and cookie pairings, but they do get to learn about complementary flavor pairing,

“The girls came up with ice cream and cookie pairings, as well as tea and cookie pairings. They all had a chance to try cookies they don’t normally like and see that when it’s paired with a tea, it brings out different flavors and becomes an enjoyable experience.”

Marley says that learning about complementary flavors gives the girls some insight as to why the adults enjoy the beer and cookie pairings so much.

“That’s what this has always been about for our community, helping the girls learn all about being entrepreneurs and how to interact with people. It’s been an added bonus that during COVID the girls had an epiphany about flavors and how they interact with each other.”

Rall says explains that COVID hasn’t been all bad and has actually given her the opportunity to show these scouts that you can be successful even in the hardest of times.

“This year, we’re not only doing a beer and cookie pairing, but we’ve also added wine pairings,” adds Rall.
