1. Mix together warm water, yeast, and 1/2 cup brown sugar. Let stand 5-10 minutes until foamy. 2.  In an electric mixer bowl, mix together flour and coarse salt with your hands. Add butter and continue to mix until mixture is crumbly. Add yeast mixture and continue to mix until water is absorbed and dough is formed. 3.  Using the dough hook attachment, mix dough 6-8 minutes on medium speed until it is elastic and smooth. Cover with plastic wrap. 4. Put in refrigerator and chill at least 8 hours. 5. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. 6.  Roll dough into a 12” by 14” rectangle. Cut into one dozen 12” long strips, each about an inch wide. Transfer to a baking sheet and cover with a kitchen towel. 7. Chill in refrigerator for 15 minutes. 8.  Roll out each dough piece into a 30-33” long rope (about 3/4 of an inch thick), starting from the center and working toward the ends. Make a “U” shape and cross the ends over, pinching at the bottom to form a pretzel. Return to baking sheet. 9. In a saucepan, combine 8 cups water, baking soda, beer, and remaining 1/4 cup brown sugar. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Simmer pretzels, one at a time, until pretzel floats, about 30 seconds. Transfer to baking sheet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. 10. Sprinkle pretzels with pretzel salt. Bake for 5 minutes. Rotate baking sheet and continue baking until pretzels turn chestnut brown (4 to 6 minutes more). Remove from baking sheet and transfer to a wire rack to cool. Serve warm with mustard.
