Pretzels and beer are the perfect combination. So why not try the beer-infused pretzels at The Village Bakery & Cafe (pictured above). The Atwater bakery serves up the softest selection for $2.50 using a yummy selection of beers, reports Squid Ink. They’re usually available Wednesday through Sunday, but this week you will have to wait until Saturday to pick up a pretzel. Squid Ink
