Food: Beer
Pretzel Beer Can   (+3, -3)  [vote for, against]
Beer which is served in a container made of pretzel.

The ideal situation for combining beer and pretzels. The beer could be poured into a container made entirely of pretzel, and when the alcohol had been consumed, the drinker could enjoy a light snack. This would also give beer a slightly saltier taste, which many people already enjoy.

The only problem that I see, is keeping the beer from making the pretzel container mushy, and thereby breaking and spilling the beer. How about a very thin layer of edible plastic applied to the inside of the pretzel-can which would keep it from deteriorating?

I think this would be great. You could also use flavored pretzels, depending on the beer. For instance, if you were drinking Corona, you might have a spicy, jalapeno flavored pretzel mug, or if you were drinking Moosehead, you could have a sour cream flavored pretzel.

This is an idea whose time has come.

Oh. I thought at first you'd be talking about some sort of Klein bottle.

You could line the pretzel with sheep's stomach, like haggis.

Better yet, why not line it with a condom, then you'd be ready for that nightcap. Or she may just want to slip the condom over the pretzel and you can drink another brew alone. I see the merger now Herr/Trojan/Miller, It's oh so satisfying!
