Boston, MA, April, 2018 - Dorchester Brewing Company (dorchesterbrewing.com), Wicked Twisted Pretzels (wickedtwistedpretzels.com), and the Mass. Brew Bros. (massbrewbros.com) are excited to announce their collaboration beer release and event to celebrate National Pretzel Day, taking place on Thursday, April 26th. The release coincides with Mass Beer Week, a celebration of Mass. produced beer that runs from April 20-28.


The Mass. Brew Bros., in collaboration with Shawn and Josh Briggs of Grafton-based Wicked Twisted Pretzels and their longtime friend and bandmate Todd Charbonneau, head brewer and co-founder at Dorchester Brewing, put their heads together and figured out how to combine pretzels and beer to create the ultimate brew. A five-barrel pilot batch is called Brew Bros. Twisted Dunkel, it's a German style dark lager made with Munich malt, added salt, and 40 pounds of Wicked Twisted Pretzels tossed in to the mash. The beer will be available on draft and in crowlers to go only at the Dorchester Brewing Company taproom.

Having lived in both Germany and Pennsylvania, the latter where National Pretzel Day was established in 2003, the Briggs Brothers are perfect local ambassadors for such an affair. You'll find their hand-crafted, all-natural Bavarian style pretzels, made in Grafton, at dozens of breweries through Massachusetts. A perfect combination, the average American eats more than two pounds of pretzels and drinks more than 20 gallons of beer per year.

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

About Wicked Twisted Pretzels
As kids, Shawn and Josh were introduced to warm, hand-crafted Bavarian style pretzels from the Bavarian Pretzel Hut on family trips to upstate New York. Coincidentally, Josh later lived in Philadelphia and Shawn in Munich, Germany, cities with incredibly delicious pretzels. Unable to find them anywhere else in the U.S., they soon moved back to Massachusetts and set out solve the problem. They perfected their recipe (featuring natural ingredients like fresh malt and roasted barley) in Shawn's kitchen, and are now found in craft breweries, bars and restaurants all over New England, as well as in Whole Foods Markets. Recently they added a line of gourmet mustards.
