Mmmmmmm, these were so good. We made these for Fathers Day and we loved them. The beer and butter simmering with the brats was a heavenly smell. I served them with sauerkraut and all the condiments. Thank you for much for sharing with us.

I have never cooked bratwurst so I looked it up on this site and this was the first recipe that popped up. I used Coors Light only because I have it available when a friend who loves it comes over. I personally don't like beer but I know it is tasty when used to cook things. I severd them on potato hotdog buns which is probably a no no, but we enjoyed it. The onions in the beer and butter werE amazing too. Thanks for posting!

I was a little skeptical of this as my whole house smelled like beer as the bratwurst cooked, but it was delicious. It didn't have the slightest beer taste and was even a little sweet. We loved it. Of course, my house still smells like beer and it is the next morning, so this may be something to cook outside on a burner on the grill! : )

WOW! Chef Cathy this recipe is awesome! DH simply LOVED it. I used turkey brats and seasoned the sauce with red pepper flakes, garlic and a little Mexican chili powder for spice. We had and unexpected guest just as we were ready to eat so of course we invited her to stay. She inhaled two and I think she would have gone back for more if I had them. This was so easy to pull together for an easy weekend dinner. We will have again and again and again!

This was awesome! I'm a big fan of brats anyway, usually just BBQ'd. This is a great way to do them inside. It also eliminates those little gristly pockets in them. I used Miller High Life, about 2/3rds of a 32oz can. I also used a whole onion, and added about 6 whole peppercorns and a dash of Chohula seasoning. YUM!

Samuel Adams is a great beer, but it is not for this recipe. When I used it, the hoppy bitter taste of the Samuel Adams was very concentrated. A beer like Miller or Corona would have been much better, since they are smoother. Still the recipe is delicious. I don't think you need to use only 1/4 onion here they really cook down too - I used a whole onion.

The BEST beer brats ever, Chef Cathy. I served with steamed, peppered yellow squash with some of the beer-syrup liquid as a sort of garnish/sauce, and some crusty bread. (I didn't have buns!) A great, easy, economical summer meal. Thanks!

Loved it. Nice change of pace, I always either pan-fry or cook on the grill. Makes a wonderful gravy too...
