A few weeks ago we reported on the latest creation to hit the Texas State Fair – deep-fried beer and pretzels.
Well, a chef in Milwaukee has now jumped on the bandwagon and created his own version of fried beer and pretzels. Starting today at The Miller Time Pub at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center, they will be serving a deep-fried beer appetizer.
For $5, you get three pieces of the deep-fried beer, a beer chaser and three dipping sauces including horseradish ale cream, nine-grain mustard and spicy Wisconsin cheddar. Just beware: you must be 21 to order. Even though the ravioli-like pretzel exterior and beer is fried, there’s still enough alcoholic content left behind. So the Hilton is saying, “Please chew responsibly.”
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel wrote about Executive Chef Brian Frakes creation:
Frakes chose New Glarus Staghorn Octoberfest with a spicy bouquet and reddish color to feature inside the pretzel-dough ravioli. The beer is frozen with gelatin to create beer jewels, which are tucked inside the dough before it’s fried for about 20 seconds. The quick-frying cooks the dough and returns the beer to its liquid state. A sprinkle of rosemary fire salt is the finishing touch.
