Good thing you’re not driving the sleigh. Here’s how to beer-pair your cookie plate.

Oreo + Anderson Valley Bourbon Barrel Stout: Forget milk; this is dunkability. A gorgeous chocolate, vanilla and bourbon-laced brew melds seamlessly with Oreo cocoa/white frosting sweetness, while the cookie’s crunch finds a friend in the dry barrel notes.

Peanut butter cookie + Great Divide Oatmeal Yeti: Peanut butter flavor fits snugly between this oatmeal-smooth imperial stout’s prickly roast and silky chocolate (think Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups). Best of all, the P.B. turns shell-dry in the beer’s ashy finish for an amazingly clean end.

Oatmeal raisin cookie + Verzet Oud Bruin Editie 2013: A zippy, seriously tart Flanders brown bobs and weaves through chewy oatmeal cookies, bringing some much-needed lightness to the mumble-your-words mouthful. And when the beer’s dark cherry catches the cookie’s raisin? It’s a perfect fruit burst.

Sugar cookie + Arcadia Cereal Killer Barleywine: The mild-mannered sugar cookie is a holiday staple, but bells ring when it’s paired with a burly barleywine. The cookie’s butter and sugar are dessert-perfect companions to the beer’s caramel and cherry; hop bitterness and alcohol warmth clip the pairing to a quiet conclusion.

Pumpkin cookie + Evolution Jacques Au Lantern: Pumpkin cookie and pumpkin beer? Seems like a no-brainer. But what works so well with this particular duo is the way the cookie’s one-note sweet pumpkin flavor bathes in spicy nutmeg and cinnamon bubbles, taking the beer and the cookie to new heights.
