Pretzels, mustard, and beer, one of the best trios in food today provide us with the hearty brawn we so often crave during the cold, winter months, and from there we add BRATS! Wow! Mature, masculine snacks such as the pretzel require equally rugged pairings perfected in the spicy, delicacy of mustard and the hoppy decadence of beer. In this class, we’ll divulge the history of pretzels, mustard, and beer while enjoying artisanal beer crafted locally while developing your new knowledge and skills. We’ll be making a wide range of different pretzels from sweet to spicy and all sorts of mustards & brats to accompany these varied saveurs to satisfy all. You’ll gain hands-on experience using the ingredients that make up pretzels and mustard, get your hands busy twisting dough, and explore the many different ways to liven up traditional pretzels and mustards. Come do “the twist” as we devour our chewy salty snacks good enough to fuel you for world domination (co-hosted by local Brooklyn beer artisans)!
