Why craft beer and cookies??

If you had to pair your favorite beverage with your favorite food, what would it be? That’s a pretty loaded question because there are a lot of great pairings! Seeing as I’ve worked in the craft beer industry for over five years now I’ve gotten to know a little bit about one of my favorite drinks: craft beer.

I wasn’t much into beer until later in college. Actually, when I studied abroad I was 19 and didn’t drink much except super fruity vodka drinks because I just didn’t know any better. Everytime we went to a pub I would steal one of my friends’ beers and try it out to see what I’d like and wouldn’t like. The first “beer” that I thought I liked was a radler in Germany and that’s hardly even beer!

Later on, back in Fargo, that same friend and I started doing Old Chicago’s World Beer Tour. We’d go once a week and get the max four beers towards the tour. By the time I moved to Colorado I had completed two of those silly tours (110 beers in a tour) and knew a lot more about craft beer. Of course a lot has changed the five years that I’ve lived here and now I love pairing beer with food.

You can come and see what the pairing is all about TOMORROW at Ratio. You have to get tickets here: https://nightout.com/events/good-sugar-baking-cookie-beer-pairing-at-ratio-beerworks/tickets

If that doesn’t work out, next Wednesday at Zuni Street Brewing I will be having a beer and cookie pairing from 6-8pm. No tickets for this pairing, just come on out and try some delicious cookies with one of Denver’s newest breweries!
