Our first pairing on our Addictive Food Creative Brews Blog is Sam Adams Boston Lager paired with our Traditional Soft Pretzel Sticks! If you’ve ever been to a brewery, there’s a good chance they had pretzels there. It’s also no coincidence that soft pretzel food trucks often make their rounds at local breweries. Beer and pretzels go together like peanut butter and jelly and for a good reason: salt.
Even though salt is one of the most widely used seasonings, it is so often forgotten about when it comes to enhancing flavor. You might have known that salt enhances the flavors of food, but it does the same for beer too! Our traditional soft pretzels sticks are sprinkled with salt and come out warm to your table. When you bite into them and then take a sip of your cold refreshing beer, you’ll see why it’s the perfect pairing!
With so many beers on tap, why did we choose Sam Adams? Sam Adams Boston Lager is a classic brew with “A distinctive balance of spicy hops, slightly sweet roasted malts, and a smooth finish.” It’s easy to drink and goes great with classic meals. Unlike an IPA for example, this brew is mild in flavor and won’t overpower the flavors of your food. Whether you like it on tap or from a bottle, we recommend ordering our pretzel sticks with it!
