Luminous Debuts House Pretzels
(Sheridan, Wyo.) On Wednesday, Luminous Brewhouse officially launched their in-house pretzels made from “wort,” which is used in the brewing process.
A lucky few were able to sample the flavor of these unique pretzels at the last farmer’s market. Kathryn Law, of Luminous Brewhouse, handed out “pretzel bites” along with the beer that was purchased, highlighting the ideal pairing.
A local baker, who wishes to remain anonymous, hand-made and hand-tied the 64 pretzels available at the official launch. Unlike ordinary pretzels, these ones have their liquid replaced with wort, the stew that is used as a raw ingredient and fermented to create beer. The plan is to see how well the public likes this new bar snack, then order them as needed to fill demand.
The pretzels went up for sale at 4:00 pm and were sold out by 5:15. At $4.50, these large delicacies were well worth the price. The thin, crisp skin covers a moist center with a unique taste. Paired with a sweet mustard sauce, these aren’t your ordinary pretzels.
The general consensus was an enthusiastic endorsement of the culinary endeavor. Customers were encouraged to express their feelings about the experience on a chalkboard.
“It’s good to pair beer with food,” said Brady Mclean, who was tending the bar, “it’s even better to pair beer with food made with our beer… Eat a pretzel, drink a beer: Life is good.”
