Did you know there is a National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend? Well there is, and to celebrate, San Diego craft brewers Mike Hess Brewing and Stone Brewing Co. are each hosting Cookies on Tap from noon Friday through 10 p.m. Sunday.

For $15, adult lovers of Girl Scout Cookies will get a flight of five craft beers (from whichever brewer’s location you visit) paired with five cookies. Proceeds from the event go to raise awareness about the organization, help with financial assistance and Operation Thin Mint, which provides cookies to our Military troops. It’s a match made in Thin Mint and beer heaven.

Cookies on Tap will take place at the North Park and Miramar locations of Mike Hess Brewing and at the Oceanside and downtown (Kettner Boulevard) locations of Stone Brewing. For more information, visit
