Enjoyed the flavor that the spices gave the brats after they simmered. This is the first time I'd BBQ my brats after cooking them and it will not be the last. Served the sauce along side the brats after taking out the cloves and peppercorns. This was my brat festival weekend. I fixed two other different recipes besides Bergy's, mine #22939 and secret's # 18213.

We have made this recipe over and over. It is our favorite "brat" recipe. Followed your instructions exactly. Delicious meal on the grill.

FANTASTIC!!! I made these brats on Friday afternoon for our tailgate Saturday afternoon. I prepared them just like the recipe says, then they sat in the mixture for almost 24 hours before we actually grilled them on Saturday. They were SO good, and I can't wait to make them again!

Great recipe, Bergy! I did leave out the cloves and garlic. The flavor added from the beer and onion is outstanding and the brats aren't greasy, something I really dislike. DH raved over these and said to tell you this is the ONLY way we will be cooking brats from now on! Thanks for the recipe, it's a new family favorite!

great recipe for brats! i have to be honest and admit that i am not a huge brat fan but i made this for my dh and ended up loving them. this way is the best way for getting juicy and flavorful brats instead of the half raw, half charred brats like i am used to lol. i did leave out the cloves but we didn't taste a difference. thanks for the recipe.

Great recipe! Very simple and an easy detour from just boiling with water or throwing right on the grill. An understated recipe that's made with everything on hand.

These were great, and so easy! I omitted the cloves, but followed everything else exactly. The brats were tender and flavorful. Thanks for sharing.
