Beer Pretzels

Beer Pretzels

Our pretzels are made in the traditional Bavarian style with a twist – it also incorporates barley grains previously used to make beer!

By diverting brewery grains that typically would have been discarded and result in greenhouse gases, you can help to reduce climate change simply by eating these delicious pretzels!

Slightly tough and salted on the outside and soft texture on the inside.

We bet this will become your favourite snack of choice.

Did you know Barley grains are:

Good for your Health – Considered one of the healthiest whole food grains.
Studies show it’s protective against Breast Cancer, Type 2 Diabetes, Gallstones, Heart failure and lowers cholesterol.

Good Nutrition – Double the fiber and protein; Less gluten (but NOT gluten-free) and low glycemic compared to white flour bread.

How is the Barley sourced?

In the craft brewing process, once the barley has been boiled to release sugar, the grains are considered ‘spent’ and traditionally provided as animal feed or disposed – 185 million KGs of brewery grains are disposed in Ontario every year.

Instead, if we took those spent grains and made food with it, we could feed every Ontarian 2 loaves of bread every week!

These brewery grains have twice the amount of fibre and protein compared to wheat (it’s the reason it’s used as animal feed) – Fibre is ideal for reducing cholesterol and is one of the whole grains listed on the Canadian food guide.

Made in Toronto by Henderson Brewing, Drake Commissary and The Spent Goods Company.

We believe you can do something about climate change (and your heart) on a daily basis, simply by eating our Beer Pretzels!
