A Twist of Fate

 

When you think of Hofbrauhaus Las Vegas, what comes to mind? Beer? Yes, good answer. But we are willing to bet our famous soft pretzels are a close second.

 

Pretzels and bier have been Bavarian favorites for centuries, but how did these twisted treats rise to the top of the food chain?

 

One tale traces the pretzel back to 610 A.D. where European monks used pretzels as a way to reward children who learned their prayers. According to some accounts, they were called pretiolas which translates to little rewards. Others say they were originally called bracelle, a Latin term for little arms, which may have also led to the German term bretzel.

 

Regardless of their namesake, these doughy delicacies remained popular across Europe throughout the Middle Ages, even becoming a symbol of prosperity, good luck and spiritual fulfillment. By the 17th century German children would don pretzel necklaces on the New Year as way to represent the good fortune. This is also when pretzels became synonymous with undying love. Legend has it that the term tying the knot may have come from royal couples in Switzerland who used the pretzels in their wedding ceremonies much like a wishbone; each tugging at it until it was broken in two, the larger portion promising a happy future.

 

Happy future indeed! Today our rendition of these fresh-baked favorites reign as a staple of Bavarian culture Soft on the inside, crunchy on the outside and sprinkled with perfect amount of salt, nothing compares to our warm pretzels.

 

 

Like our beers, each pretzel is crafted with great attention to detail and adherence to centuries of tradition. Simple ingredients combined with a passion for perfection has made our pretzels and bier an unbeatable combination. Here’s something else you’ll want know: when you bite into a pretzel at our Haus you’re not getting a copycat; you’re getting original flavor imported straight from the source in Munich, Germany. This is just another reason we are one of the best places to eat in Las Vegas.

 

 

 

What Hofbräu Bier pairs best?

 

If you really want a treat, pair your Hofbrauhaus pretzel with our Oktoberfestbier. It’s clean and crisp flavor was made for the light and fluffy texture of our pretzels.

 

But wait, isn’t Oktoberfestbier a seasonal selection?

 

Why yes it is. Luckily, our full-bodied original is another equal match for the pretzel. But who are we kidding? Any beer of ours is fantastic no matter what you have it with.

 

From 610 A.D. to today it’s easy to see how pretzels have shaped our culinary history. What’s your favorite way to enjoy this twisted tradition? Tell us in the comments!
