Grilled Beer Braised Bratwursts With Cranberry/Pickle Chutney

Recipe by Viclynn

Don't let this combination scare you - it is SO tasty! You can make the brats ahead of time and let them simmer in the delicious sauce. PERFECT for tailgating at football games!

We loved this. A great change-of-pace way of preparing brats! The Cranberry Chutney really compliments the brats. I will be making this again, for sure. Thanks for sharing it, Viclynn.
