I know that the whole food and drink “pairing” dynamic has gotten a little out of control in recent years, but I find nothing wrong with the idea of pairing cookies and beer. On Friday, Dec. 14, visit Jubilation Beer Wine & Spirits (3512 Lomas Blvd NE) for a pairing of Bosque Brewing’s canned beers and Rude Boy Cookies’ baked treats between 4 and 6pm. My favorite of the Bosque lineup, the Elephants on Parade, is paired with a white chocolate chip sugar cookie and a dollop of strawberry ice cream. Yes, please. Come hungry and thirsty, but also come ready to learn some things about flavor profiles and tasting notes. What, you thought there wasn’t some science to this tasting stuff? This is a free event, but Rude Boy Cookies will be sold separately (and make great holiday gifts, by the way). Please show up older than 21 and ready to prove it with an ID.
