We love beer – and cookies. A lot. We paired six of our favorite cookies with a mix of new and classic brews. It may have left us with a case of the cookie sweats, but it was deliciously worth it. Earn the Binny’s badge by giving these pairings a taste for yourself.
One of our favorite hops to hit the scene in the last few years is the Mosaic hop. A descendant of the Simcoe hop, the Mosaic hop, like its ancestor, is famous for its bright, tropical flavors. Just as a mosaic is built from a multitude of smaller pieces, the Mosaic hop combines a myriad of hop flavors and aromas into one complex little cone – a Mosaic of flavors and aromas that you’ll find in our favorites below.

Who knows, maybe we’ll have surprises. More info after the jump.
Founded in 2013, Rye River Brewing is located in the small Irish town of Kilcock just outside of Dublin. Their McGargles line of beer represents the return of brewing to Kilcock, a town whose rich brewing history dates as far back as 1595. What excites us about McGargles is their combination of old and new world brewing traditions.
Over the past few years, several breweries have battled to claim the title of the world’s strongest beer. Perhaps none more famous than the rivalry between Germany’s Schorschbräu and Scottland’s BrewDog. Germany’s Schorschbräu Brewery remains committed to consistent production of monstrous brews, the strongest of which clocks in at over 100 proof!
As the weather gets colder it’s hard to beat a nice rich stout or porter.

From old favorites to tasty new brews, here are some unique stouts and porters that are perfect for your next holiday get together.
