Girl Scout Cookie Inspired Beer Release
This weekend February 24th & 25th, 2018, Crooked Thumb Brewery will hold it’s 3rd annual Girl Scout Cookie Inspired Beer Release. This has become one of the most popular events at Crooked Thumb as well as one of the most popular Tampa Bay beer releases of the year. It started when one of the owner’s daughter planned to sell cookies at the brewery with her Girl Scout troop. The team at Crooked Thumb had the idea to try and create beers with the same flavors as the legendary cookies. The beers were a huge hit with customers and every year the event grows larger. This year will be the first that some of the beers will be sold in bottles. Mint Chocolate Imperial Stout and S’mores Imperial Stout will be sold in 22 oz bottles as a limited quantity release. Only 700 bottles will be sold and they are expected to go quickly. These Imperial Stouts as well as a Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter and Chocolate Coconut Doppelbock will be available on draft in the tasting room starting Feb. 24th at noon. Girl Scout troops will be in the beer garden selling cookies Saturday from noon til 7pm and Sunday from 1-4pm. Food will be available for purchase from Dog Dayz Hot Dogs Saturday and East Coast Catering Sunday (Fresh Mex bowls, tacos & nachos.)
