Big Giant chocolate stouts, or sweet earthy barleywines. fruit beers will work as well

These all sound delicious, but barelywines are pretty strong, and big giant stouts usually are too. I always feel a breakfast beer should be no higher than 7, 7.5% ;)

I'll try a fruit beer next time so I can tell people I had Juice and Oatmeal.

I went with a chocolatey Dark Ale. Not too sweet, not too heavy. Really really good with these specific cookies.

Left Hand Milk Stout would be really good!

Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout has chocolate and coffee flavors that would go well with cookies. (It also goes quite well with a good vanilla bean ice cream.)

Depends how much beer you've drunk before eating the cookies. But I like the idea of wine/beer and cookie pairing - Cookie Monster would approve.

If we have fried cheese why can't we have liquor and cookies?

Founders breakfast stout! Coffee, vanilla, oatmeal, and nutmeg...stands up well with cakes too!
