Now that was a Good(Life) Pretzel (Bend, OR)

A little over a month ago a few of my friends and I hopped over to beautiful Bend, OR to conquer the Bend Ale Trail. Out of all the breweries we visited, Goodlife Brewing gets a stamp of approval in my book. 

Not only did they have a great selection of ales, but they also had a delicious Bavarian Pretzel! This pretzel consists of their own spent grain salted soft pretzel paired with their German stone ground mustard and pale ale cheese sauce. The pretzel was good (a little flaky, and had a dinner roll-like taste), but the dipping sauce made it excellent. We couldn't get enough of it! 

If you haven't been to Bend or tried to tackle the Bend Ale Trail I promise you, you won't be disappointed. However, you might be intoxicated. If you're up for the challenge, at least you know you can carb-load in style along the way...
