So when you think of Texas you typically have a few things pop into your head… #1 Does it wear a cowboy hat?  #2 Is it a cheerleader? #3 Is there beer involved? and #4 Is it deep-fried?  Typically the answer is yes… unless your thinking of #2, which the answer is “dear Jesus please please please make it true!!!!!!”

In this case… it’s both deep-fried, and yup… beer is involved.  Texas’ very own… Deep Fried Beer! My arteries feel like they were just donkey kicked just thinking about this.

According to the UK’s Telegraph Media Group:

Inventor Mark Zable said it had taken him three years to come up with the cooking method and a patent for the process is pending. He declined to say whether any special ingredients were involved.

His deep-fried beer will be officially unveiled in a fried food competition at the Texas state fair later this month.

Five ravioli-like pieces will sell for $5 (£3) and the Texas Alcoholic Commission has already ruled that people must be aged over 21 to try it.

Mr Zable has so far been deep frying Guinness but said he may switch to a pale ale in future.

He said: “Nobody has been able to fry a liquid before. It tastes like you took a bite of hot pretzel dough and then took a drink of beer.” Mr Zable previously invented dishes including chocolate-covered strawberry waffle balls and jalapeño corndog shrimps.
