Celebrate National Pretzel Day with a twist

Soft-baked pretzels and beer are a match made in heaven. Later this month, they’ll be a match made in a pint glass.

April 20th through the 28th is the celebration of Mass Beer Week, an exciting showcase of the local beer community across the Commonwealth. There are tons of events, including one that helps celebrate local brewing as well as local pretzels!

The Mass Brew Bros. recently teamed up with Dorchester Brewing Co. and Wicked Twisted Pretzels to brew a unique beer to commemorate National Pretzel Day, which takes place on April 26th.

Brewed on a five-barrel pilot batch, the beer is named Brew Bros. Twisted Dunkel,  a German style dark lager made with Munich malt, added salt, and 40 pounds of Wicked Twisted Pretzels tossed in to the mash. This beer will be available in Dorchester Brewing Company’s tap room only on tap and to-go in Crowlers.

The non-ticketed, free event, open to the beer-drinking, pretzel-eating public, will be held at the Dorchester Brewing Co. taproom at 1250 Massachusetts Ave, Dorchester, MA on Thursday, April 26 from 5:00pm to 9:00pm. Festivities will include the debut of the special collaborative beer, commemorative glassware, which is free for the first 20 people to order the beer on tap, a raffle for free tickets to the Mass Brewers Guild Power Beer Fest on April 28 and free swag from Dorchester Brewing Company, and of course plenty of Wicked Twisted Pretzels (soft and hard) and gourmet mustard available for purchase.
