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??? 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!
