Parrano® Beer Pretzels


  • ½ cup warm water
  • 1 ½ cups beer, divided into 1 cup and ½ cup
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 ounces unsalted butter
  • Vegetable oil, for pan
  • 10 cups water
  • ½ cup baking soda
  • 1 large egg yolk, beaten with 1 Tablespoon water
  • 1 cup grated Parrano® cheese


  1. Pour warm water into bowl, sprinkle package of yeast over the water and let sit for 8-10 minutes.  Cover top of bowl with towel.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, and salt.  Mix until well-combined.
  3. Melt butter in small saucepan over low heat or microwave.
  4. Measure out beer and bring to room temperature.
  5. Once yeast has foamed up like the head of a beer, add the flour to the bowl, followed by the melted butter and 1 cup of beer.  Using a stand mixer or wooden spoon, mix until a dough forms, adding more flour if the dough is too wet, more water or beer if it is too dry.
  6. Once dough comes together, knead around five times.  Then, form into a ball and place in a lightly oiled bowl. *Optional: Rub dough down with melted butter.
  7. Allow to rise one hour, or until dough doubles in size.  Cover bowl with a towel and put it in a warm place.
  8. Once dough has risen, combine the remaining ½ cup beer, the 10 cups of water, and the baking soda and bril to a boil.  Preheat oven to 450o F.
  9. Divide dough into eight segments.  Take one segment and roll into a long rope on a lightly floured surface.  Start with hands in the middle of an oblong piece, and, then, roll it back and forth to form the rope.  Remember to push from the middle out, constantly lengthening the rope.
  10. Roll pretzel dough out to around 18 inches long, then form the rope into a U, twist the two ends around each other, and stick the ends to the bottom of the U, forming a pretzel shape.
  11. Once your pretzels are shaped, boil them for 30 seconds, one at a time in the beer/ water/ baking soda combo, then remove with a spatula and place on a lightly greased parchment paper on a baking sheet.  Brush with the yolk/ water mixture and top with grated Parrano® cheese.
  12. Bake for 12 minutes, or until pretzels are a deep, golden brown and the cheese has melted.
