Dry Beer Time

I felt in my bones; first, that this world does not explain itself....  Fourth, that the proper form of thanks to it is some form of humility and restraint; we should thank God for beer and Burgundy by not drinking too much of them.  - GK Chesterton
There's a running joke here at work for "10 o'clock dry beer time".  Dry beer = pretzels.

Basic Pretzel ingredients (from Auntie Anne's website):
Makes 6 large pretzels

1 teaspoon instant yeast
1 tablespoon malt powder or brown sugar
2-3 cups all-purpose unbleached or bread flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup warm milk (approximately 110 degrees, which is 1 minute in my microwave)

Basic beer ingredients:
Barley (a grain malted to brew beer)

There's enough of an overlap it works as a joke.  But truly I would buy a pretzel flavored with Guinness or Yuengling.  I'm kind of surprised no beer company has tried the snack food realm yet.  If any major beer company representative gets e-lost, finds this measly blog & markets it as a product.  GREAT!!  All I ask is 1 bag as a fee.

A quick search shows me there are some beer pretzel recipes and also makes me hungry.  Soon this may be tried at my house.
