It’s almost that time again! All day long on Saturday, March 2nd, Caps N’ Taps will be serving flights of five classic Girl Scout cookies carefully paired with five thoughtfully selected ales.
Also, if you are still in need of cookies, Girl Scouts will be setting up a booth outside Caps N’ Taps on select days throughout February and early March.
