A few months ago when I was in the Emerald Coast, Florida at the Ft. Walton Beach Four Points Sheraton I had the best pretzels and beer cheese in the lobby bar. It so happened that the Chef gave me a loose recipe for the beer cheese which I knew I had to make. Although I didn’t grab the pretzel recipe to go along with it, I had one of my own. My cheesy homemade pretzels to go with the beer cheese seemed to be a perfect match.

I haven’t made pretzels in awhile but this basic recipe is quick and easy for a quick fix to a craving. There is no rising time to this one so you can skip the beer cheese (gasp) and pair them with mustard, if you prefer, but if you try the beer cheese, you will be glad you did.
