We love this method for making brats! Brown the brats on the grill, caramelize the onions, then savor the smell of your brats simmering in a lovely brown ale. The brats are tender and juicy and are perfect topped with the onions and your favorite mustard or whatever else you like.

Here are the ingredients I used. My beer is a home brewed brown ale.
