Texan Invents ‘Deep-Fried Beer’

Give this man a Nobel: Mark Zable has invented “deep-fried beer” and will unveil it at this summer's Texas state fair. He makes the dish by placing the beer inside a pocket of pretzel-like dough and then deep-frying the ravioli-like pieces for 20 seconds. He uses Guinness, and the end product is alcoholic enough that the Texas Alcoholic Commission has ruled that you must be over 21 to buy it. “It tastes like you took a bite of hot pretzel dough and then took a drink of beer,” Zable says.
