Ingredients

  • 1

    (12 ounce) bottle brown ale

  • 2

    tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more to butter the baking dish

  • 1 1/4

    cups dark brown sugar, packed

  • 1/4

    cup light corn syrup

  • 1

    cup heavy cream

  • 1 1/2

    cups thin pretzels, coarsely crushed

  • Pour the beer into a glass; let sit until flat, about 1 hour.

Directions

Butter an 8-inch-square baking dish. Set aside. Bring half of the beer to a boil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook until reduced to 2 teaspoons, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, combine remaining beer, brown sugar, corn syrup, cream and butter in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until a candy thermometer registers 235°F, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in beer syrup and pretzels. Spread in the prepared dish and chill until firm, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Cut into pieces.
