Oh wow.....this was fantastic. The brats took on the taste from the beer and then to grill them and add them back into the sauerkraut/beer mixture???......to die for. Thankyou so much for sharing this with us, we loved it. This was a simple meal to serve on these incredibly HOT HOT days.

Oh my wonderful. Have a lot of eaters so I doubled the recipe. Added minced garlic with the butter and onions and used one MGD and one Guiness... This was an absolute hit. Already requests for more ;-)

YUMMY! Left out the caraway- don't like it- but followed the rest of the recipe. Delish! Used some Shiner Bock! Great recipe!

Great tasting beer glaze. I used real butter to saute onion and added about 1T mined garlic. Added the brown sugar and pepper. I did not have caraway seeds so I didn't worry about it. I also used 1 bottle of coors lite. I let the beer reduce down for about 30-45 minutes. It made a very nice onion glaze. The flavor was great!!! Thanks for the post! **I did not use sauerkraut, I'm not sure how I feel about it, but the brats were great with the beer glaze!

Really nice sandwiches. I've never liked sauerkraut, but I thought I'd give it a try on top of these brats. We all really enjoyed it - my guys loved the touch of sweetness from the sweet onion and the brown sugar. A perfect use for a couple of bottles of beer that were past their prime. Thanks for sharing!

Amazing! This recipe is such a great way to prepare brats for a barbecue. I made this the day before I was serving them. Then the day of, we threw them on the grill ,and because they were pre-cooked, we only had to browned them up a little. Reheated the sauerkraut on the stove-top, served the brats with German Curry Sauce for Wurst German Curry Sauce for Wurst, and pleased a crowd of people. This recipe is a keeper.

Delicious! We had this for dinner on this cold, snowy night. I knew there was no way I would be able to talk Pete into grilling tonight, so I tossed everything except the sauerkraut into a 13X9, covered and baked at 400 for two hours. I did add a little more (ok, ok, a LOT more) caraway seeds, but other than that, the recipe was made as posted. Thanks for a keeper!
