Love this! I find they look nicer and brown better if I use my grill pan and drizzle the EVOO and steak seasoning on it first. I have also used this recipe for family parties. I add onion and colorful sliced peppers to the crockpot too. Great way to enjoy brats in the winter!

Great beer brats! I have made these a few times and they get super reviews every time. This is a good "go to" recipe for tailgating type parties. Thanks, TheDancingCook!

I was quite suprised that these sausages came out tasting really bland as if the flavour had been boiled out. Having said that, they weren't horrible, and we still ate them all, but I wouldn't do my brats like this again.

I made these for my DS and let me start by saying that he's quite the critic! He said that the skin wasn't crispy the way he likes it but the flavor was really good. It smelled good while they were cooking today. Thanks for posting!!

These were good! My husband really like them! We just moved and our grill is packed away, so this worked great. Wonderful flavor! I will do this again when cravings hit for brats during the winter months.

I'm from Wi and I make these by grilling the plain brats first and then putting the brats, a sliced onion and the beer in the crock pot and cooking till you can't wait anymore because of the smell! (anywhere from 2-6 hours) This works great for family parties so no one has to slave over the grill during the party I have cooked these as early as the day before the the day to serve putting them in the pot.

These were very good! Made them for my husband and his co-workers and they all raved about them. I used a light beer and also chopped and onion and added it to the crockpot. I only had two beers on hand so I added about 2 cups of water as well to cover the 12 brats I made.
