For three years, Zable has been on a mission to concoct Fried Beer. He remembers staring at a bar menu in a restaurant. Calamari. Nachos. Fried cheese.
"Someone needs to figure out a way to fry beer," he thought.
Zable started experimenting. But the beer-and-dough concoction kept exploding once it hit the fryer. He kept getting burned.
So he consulted with a food scientist – still, no luck.
Then, earlier this year, he finally found the recipe for success. Now Zable keeps the process shrouded in secrecy and has applied for a Fried Beer patent and trademark.

Freeze it. Batter it. Fry it.
At least, that is how it works for Mars bars. Which, by the way, are dreadful. We did that as an experiment with Available Information. Chocolate is a perfectly good food that does not need batter or oil to mar its complexity and perfection.
I would think that a beer aficionado would feel the same way.
The comments here will serve to enlighten this bug.

Now Zable keeps the process shrouded in secrecy...
...and will, hopefully, be struck by a speeding train before he can release it on an unsuspecting world.

Ya' know, while a good batter and hot oil can make up for a lot of culinary sins (omission or commission), some things just should not be fried. Chocolate bars and things that are normally drinks for starters . . .

If Nyarlathotep and Darth Vader got married, fried beer would be their offspring.

The speeding train being the judging. While I don't know Texans, I would think, as a general rule, they like their beer cold and drinkable, not slurped warm from a pie crust reeking of oil.

lol, grim said he was thinking about pork beer.

Not "pork" -- bacon!

Yeah, soon there will be "pigs" that grow nothing but "bacon" on themselves!
Just skin them like sheep and it's bacon time

I wonder if a man or woman first thought up the secret ingredients to hallucination salves that could be used to produce artificial beserk states in Celtic and other barbarian warriors.
Was it something the herb woman concocted due to high demand? Or was it something a man thought up when he was drinking and found some shrooms he could smoke?
