Instructions
German Beer Cheese Spread
  1. Pulse cheese cubes in food processor until a paste starts to form; add garlic, Worcestershire, caraway seeds and pepper and pulse to combine. With food processor running, add beer in a steady stream and process until consistency is thick and creamy. Refrigerate in airtight container. Makes about 1½ cups.
Red Cabbage & Apple Rotkraut
  1. Heat oil over medium heat in a saucepan; add onion and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and apple; cook 30 seconds, stirring. Add remaining ingredients and heat to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool and refrigerate in airtight container. Makes about 3 cups.
Quick Pickled Cucumber-Dill Salad
  1. Layer cucumber and onion slices in a shallow half hotel pan, sprinkling salt evenly over each layer; let stand 1 hour. Drain cucumber-onion mixture; stir in remaining ingredients. Refrigerate in airtight container. Makes about 2 cups.
Honey-Mustard Sauce
  1. Whisk all ingredients in a bowl. Refrigerate in airtight container. Makes about 1 cup.
Beer-Braise
  1. Whisk all ingredients in a bowl.
Pickle-Brined Fries
  1. Cut potatoes into fries on mandoline or by hand, placing in ice bath as they are cut; rinse and drain twice with cold water. Transfer to heat-proof container. Heat pickle juice in stockpot to a boil over high heat; pour over potatoes and weigh down to completely submerge. Cool completely; refrigerate in brine at least 2 or up to 24 hours.
  2. Drain potatoes; pat dry with paper towels. Blanch in deep fryer at 320°F for 5 minutes; cool completely and refrigerate. Stir remaining ingredients in a bowl; store in airtight container.
For Serving
  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat in a sauté pan; add 1 burger and cook 6 minutes, turning once. Add ¼ cup Beer-Braise; reduce heat to medium low, cover and braise 3 minutes.
  2. Deep-fry potatoes at 375˚F until golden brown, about 3 minutes; drain and toss with dill-spice mixture in a bowl. Spread mustard sauce on bottom half of pretzel bun; assemble sandwich with burger, rotkraut and cucumber salad. Serve with Beer Cheese and Pickle-Brined Fries sprinkled with fresh dill.
