    Phil thats the only way to cook Brats. Any beer will do. Put brats in the pot add beer to cover the brats, Add 1 large onion cut up, Add 4 table spoons mustard.
    Bring pot to a boil then low heat to simer and cook about 1hr. Remove brats and onions, (keep onions to put on brats) put cooked brats on hot Grill untill you get nice brown grill marks. THEM PIG OUT. I am sure you will enjoy.

    Oh yesss, beer and brats! An awesome combo! What I like to do is cook the brats on the grill first, cook so that they get dark,cracked and starting to dry out. Once this is done add the brats to the already boiling beer, usually 3 or 4 cans of cheap beer will do (save the good stuff for drinking), add an onion to the boiling beer with the brats and boil for about 15-20 mins, the dry brats end up soaking in the beer and onion juice. Makes an awesome meal!

    Phil,
    Beer and brats are the thing to do brother.

    That is what I will have for lunch Wed. Throw them on the grill on low heat. And let them cook until you see a few drops of juice pop out. Then allow them to soak in a bud for a few.
    Then watch out baby its eating time..

    While your brats are boiling throw a few ears of corn husk and all in the fire for a few minutes. When the brats are done remove the husk and throw the corn in the beer. It's the best sweet corn I've ever had. No need for butter or salt.

    ok...done and over with. i put in an onion and a couple of tablespoons of worschestershire sauce and boiled them in beer for about 20 mins and let them set for an hour.

    they got rave reviews. everyone who ate one thought it was great. i think i still prefer polish sausage or hot link.

    thanks all for your help:smile2:

    i usually do them that way to. it's god to cook the as long as you can at a low temp. i like to boil mine for about an hour and let them sit for about 20-30 minutes.

    Never cook with a beer that you aren't willing to drink. Makes the flavor even better when it is a beer that you personally like.

    I agree, I just have a hard time giving up 3 good cans of beer for cooking when I know I should be drinking them. Most of the beer I drink isn't very expensive so it's not to heart breaking to use them.
