Deep-fried beer and pretzels

Fried beer and pretzels.

The beer is stuffed into pretzel-like dough and flash fried for about 20 seconds.

So an inventor in Texas has done it. He’s successfully fried a liquid. Mark Zable will unveil his deep-fried beer covered in a pretzel coating at the State Fair of Texas.

Ravioli-like pockets of pretzel dough are stuffed with Guinness (Zable says he may try and use a pale ale later) and then flash fried for a few seconds. The result – an ooey, gooey concoction that you’ll need to have your driver’s license for.

Yes, you will need to be 21 to indulge in the deep-fried beer. Authorities say there is enough of the alcohol left, even after frying. For $5 you get 5 pieces of deep-fried goodness. Git on down to the Lonestar State – the fair starts Sept. 24.

Oh, another creation that the Texas fair will have – a deep-fried margarita. Another inventor has stuffed lime-flavored tequila goodness into a funnel cake and covered it in powdered sugar.

Hmm…hope that catches on to next year’s Wisconsin State Fair…

  1. Neither of those sound good to me. I’ll stick to my plain old beer and pretzels and blended margaritas. However I’m curious what they would taste like.

    And, darnit, I’m on a DIET during the Texas fair this year — and we’re only about 10 minutes away from the fairgrounds! I didn’t get to try the deep-fried butter last year, either. Sad.
