Basic cheese-pretzel goodness
- Pretzels are malty with a restrained sweetness. An intense crunch and boldly salted topping gives them their famous pop of flavor and their dry texture deliciously absorbs the complex flavors of our cheeses. Brie and Camembert are perfect for pretzels. Robust beers like fall seasonal brews make both even more scrumptious.
