    The National Association for the Specialty Food Trade awarded a medal for "best snack" to a confection made with beer and chiles, the Brent's Firey (sic) Beer Brittle. The Firey Beer Brittle is made with Red Tail Ale, Spanish peanuts, sugar, vanilla, butter, cooked into a light, crispy brittle and dusted with salt and chile de arbol powder. A delicious treat for just $10 or so per 1/2 pound. Anette's Chocolate Factory"
