ry Black Fang Carton Brewing Ship Wreck Porter “The Carton beer pairing for a black and white cookie was pretty obvious: a Shipwreck Porter. Ship Wreck is our un-spiced Spiced Honey Porter recipe designed to mature in Shipwreck Spiced Rum barrels from our neighbors at Brinley Gold Shipwreck Rum. The idea here was that the beer’s honey tones would push the very simple vanil- la cake, while the boozy heat would cut the rich, dense flat sweetness of the fondant, and of course, we all know rum goes well with both chocolate and vanilla. Throw in a copy of Die Hard, Bad Santa, Scrooged, Star Wars Christmas Special, or Elf, a warm fire, and you’re set.” Augie Carton Co-Founder, Carton Brewing William Greenberg Desserts Black & White Cookies • $27+ NYC holds the gold standard for
