Girl Scout Cookie & Beer Pairing

On Sunday, March 12th (National Girl Scout Day) we hosted Portland's own Troop 1979 of The Girl Scouts of Maine. While the group of 7th Grade Girl Scouts and their troop leaders sold cookies at the front of the restaurant, we sold flights of beer that we hand selected to pair with this seasons cookies. We wanted to promote The Girl Scouts of America, an organization that empowers young girls by teaching life, entrepreneurship, social, and business skills to help them lead successful lives. The Girl Scouts, much like the role of women in society, is invaluable and we were happy to spotlight them at The Thirsty Pig. We also enjoyed providing the community a fun event to bring together two of our great loves - local craft beer and Girl Scout Cookies!
