MEDIA, Pa. (CBS) – A Swarthmore café is hosting an event you’ll definitely want to “tagalong” to.
320 Market Café owner David Cunicelli has announced the Swarthmore outpost of his eatery will be offering special beer and Girl Scout cookie flights.
The tasting, which Cunicelli calls “the ultimate afternoon treat,” is set for Jan. 22nd at 3:20 p.m., and it includes four 4 oz. pours of beer and two of each of the different types of Girl Scout cookies.
Here’s the menu:
Caramel deLites® + Lancaster Double Chocolate Milk Stout (6.7% ABV): Dense caramel and chocolate drizzle combine to add additional depth to the milk stout and draw attention to its malty sweetness, while the toasted coconut plays well off of the smoky depth inherent to the style.
Peanut Butter Patties® + Founders Imperial Stout (10.5% ABV): The thick mouth feel of peanut butter makes these cookies a natural complement to a rich, heavy stout, casting a warm light on the beer’s nutty undertones while the chocolate sweetness juxtaposes the hint of roasted coffee.
Lemonades™ + Ship Bottom Beach Patrol Hefeweizen (4.7%ABV): Citrus is the obvious star of this pairing, from the sparkling acidity of the Hefeweizen to the saturation of lemon throughout the cookie. However, the unified flavor allows texture to take center stage, pitting the beer’s effervescence against the creaminess of the cookie’s frosting and elevating both to new heights.
Cranberry Citrus Crisps + Bell’s Two Hearted IPA (7%): Cranberries, known for their sweet yet puckering complexity, are an easy match for a full-bodied IPA. The Cranberry Citrus Crisp’s sugary element cuts through hoppiness without
diminishing it, and the beer’s bitterness makes certain that tart berries shine through in this buttery treat.
According to Cunicelli, the flights are available for dine-in customers and will only be offered while supplies last.
