Salty pretzels paired with a cold beer is a classic combo but this cheesy beer pretzel recipe is reinventing the bar-snack in a zesty new way. This new snack adds a homemade beer cheese to your soft-baked pretzels.

Make these cheesy beer pretzel snacks by starting with soft-baked pretzels. Combine a cup of water with a pack of dry yeast. Add two and a half cups of flour, a dash of brown sugar and sea salt. Then, roll this mixture out and twist them into whatever shape you want. Bake them until golden brown and season with sea salt and cornmeal. To make the beer cheese, start by blending six ounces of brown ale, two cloves of garlic, 12 ounces of grated cheese, a dash of cayenne and some hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon and salt and pepper.

This delightful cheese can be served on the side of the soft pretzels or glazed over the top.
