How to Make Beer Brats
If you have ever wanted to know how to make beer brats this recipe is perfect for you. Beer brats are very easy to prepare and you only need 3 ingredients… bratwurst, beer and onions. The brats are first simmered in a pot with beer and sliced onion and then placed onto the grill and browned. You can really use whatever type of beer you want but I like to use a good dark beer. With these brats I used Guinness. You can serve these on buns with the sliced onions and mustard. Enjoy.
