Beer & Brown Butter Soft Pretzels

A 12-pack of beer is a lot for this girl — even when paced out over time.  As a result, I’ve found many ways to get crafty with beer (mostly to free up fridge space).  Beer-braised carnitas, beer pizza crust (no additional yeast needed), beer bread, even beer chocolate chip cookies!  You name it, I’ve probably tried to make it with beer — still perfecting my beer overnight oats though… (totally kidding)
