You might be surprised by the star of the menu at newly opened Proof Bar & Cafe: gourmet pretzels. Given that Proof also boasts a solid lineup of craft beers, however, the specialty soft pretzels are actually the perfect light bites. Share a truffle parmesan, garlic butter, or a salted pretzel with your choice of artisan dipping sauces, ranging from beer cheese and horseradish aioli to Nutella and maple cream.
The pretzels all pair perfectly with the craft brews, which change constantly to keep the tap list fresh. Try the Notorious Gypsy Passion Fruit & Mango sour ale from Armada Brewing or the Headway IPA from Counterweight Brewing Co., both based in Connecticut like many of the other breweries. If you’re not interested in the pretzels, enjoy your beer with a roasted buffalo chicken melt, a salmon burger with cilantro-lime sauce, or a burger topped with thick-cut bacon and smoked gouda.
