INSIDE THE FLX: Cookies Untapped, a Girl Scout cookie and NY craft beer pairing event October 7 in Syracuse (podcast)

In this episode, we talk with Jaime Alvarez with the Girl Scouts NYPENN Pathways Council, covering 26 counties in central New York and northern Pennsylvania. 

The council holds its first-ever Girl Scout cookie and craft beer pairing event, Cookies Untapped on October 7 at the Collegian Hotel & Suites, 1060 E. Genesee St., Syracuse. Tickets are $65 at

Each Girl Scout Cookie will be perfectly paired with a delicious New York State craft beer sampling selected by A.W. Wander, Upstate’s craft beer destination.
