Nothing says Oktoberfest like a German guy running up to you with a giant pretzel.
Sold at the Beer Garden and at Blaue Gans for $7 each, these behemoths fall somewhere between soft pretzel and fresh baguette—crusty on the outside, with a bready crumb, yeasty and salty and malty all at once. We couldn't think of a better bar snack. Just please don't try to finish one off yourself. No matter how many beers you've put back.
