If there are two things in life that I love (besides Tool and Star Wars) it’s beer and cookies. Craft beer, and homemade cookies to be exact. And honestly, who doesn’t love those things?

I’ve never met another soul who didn’t love cramming their face full of freshly baked homemade cookies this time of year, and if you don’t like craft beer (especially Minnesotan craft beer – it’s the best) then we probably shouldn’t be friends. If you like beer and cookies as much as I do then you’re going to be thrilled to hear that Beaver Island Brewing in St. Cloud is going to be hosting a homemade cookie competition.

It will be taking place Saturday, December 15th between noon and 3 pm. Bring a plateful of your best cookies and see how you fare. It’s not often I get out of the house when it’s this cold outside, but I’m no match for well concocted brews and homemade snacks, so I’ll probably be there.
