Deep fried beer doesn’t taste that great?

It turns out that fried beer (we blogged about it here), the winner of “Most Creative” although not best overall deep fried food product at the Texas State Fair, might not taste all that great.

Debra Canfield of East Dallas took one bite of Fried Beer and immediately had bitter beer face.

She spit it out.

Canfield said it was too salty and tasted too much like Fried Butter, last year’s hit.

"The warm beer makes it taste like ravioli that hasn’t been cooked," Canfield said.

It’s possible that the problem was that they used some crappy American beer like Budweiser. Has anyone tasted it or tried making it?

Metalheads generally aren’t known for their super-healthy lifestyles. But I reckon this might make even the most seasoned drinker balk.

Someone in Texas (where else) – let’s call him an ‘entrepreneur’ – has come up with a recipe for deep fried beer, patent pending. Apparently it’s actually a pretzel-like dough filled with beer and briefly deep fried. Briefly so as not to affect the alcohol content, of course.

The ‘invention’ will be premiered at a fried food competition in Texas, an institution that last year awarded recipe for deep fried butter.

Inventor Mark Zable is quoted as saying:

"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."

His previous culinary achievements have included chocolate-covered strawberry waffle balls and jalapeño corndog shrimps. I bet he’s one fat dude!

Five ravioli-sized pieces will cost USD $5. I’m guessing at that rate it would take you a long time – not to mention a fair wad of cash – to get drunk.
