Beer Brats

"This is our family's way of making beer brats! We love them this way and they are even better re-grilled the next day! Depending on how much you drink while you are prepping you may need more or less beer!"

Ready In:
2hrs 30mins
5 brats




  • Get a large grill safe dish (we use the reynolds disposable roasters), place the onions, red bell peppers (if using) and brats in the bottom.
  • Mix the two mustards, Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar together and dump this mixture over the brats and onions etc.
  • Stir until the onions and brats are evenly coated.
  • Pour enough beer into the dish to cover the brats and onion, then give it a slight stir to mix the mustard mixture with the beer.
  • Put in fridge and let sit at least 30 minutes, but an hour or two is much better. When marinating time is up, remove and let come to room temperature.
  • Pre heat your grill to medium high heat.
  • Place the container directly on the grate and cook the brats in the beer mixture for 10-15 minutes, until the beer is steamy and hot. Remove from heat. But do not discard yet.
  • Turn the grill down to medium heat (or however you like your brats grilled).
  • Remove the onions and brats from the beer mixture. Then place the brats on one side of the grill and the onions on the other.
  • Grill brats and onions, turning occasionally until done. Each time you turn, baste with the remaining beer mixture. The onions should be somewhat caramelized and soft.
  • Discard the remaining beer mixture and serve on buns or hoagies with sauerkraut and other condiments as desired.

    What a great recipe, so many great flavors come out in this easy recipe. I didn't use the grill, but a grill pan on the stove top, sauting the veggies in a separate pan on the side. The end result was more than we hoped for. I'll be using this recipe often.
