This is not the first time I have enjoyed Thirsty Lion's Beer Fondue & Oven Baked Soft Pretzel. In fact, I believe this was one of the first pretzels I tried in Portland and also probably the third time I have eaten it.

So what makes it so good? First off, it is always served hot with the perfect amount of salt and comes with wait for it...pale ale fondue dipping sauce. I am a fan. I think my only slight complaint about the pretzel would be that it is a bit buttery/oily for my taste and some bites become overpowered by the fondue sauce (which isn't necessarily a bad thing, just depends on your preference.) Obviously, those factors don't stop me from finishing the whole thing (occasionally with help from friends.)
If you don't live, work or play in downtown Portland often and still want to enjoy what Thirsty Lion has to offer, you're in luck as there is also a Washington Square location.
Special thanks to the manager of Thirsty Lion for making it possible for me to post this pretzel review with pride (because young reviewers get overly excited about getting things free-of-charge) and for my bouncer friend who kept all the crazies out and allowed me to enjoy my pretzel in peace.
