Easy Beer Brats Recipe: This Simple Bratwurst Recipe Is a Must for Get-togethers & Tailgating

Beer and bratwurst is a cookout crowd pleaser. This is a simple, but craveable meal to serve at any get-together, party, holiday or tailgating event. Beer and brats are simply bratwurst that's cooked in seasoned beer and onions. Who could resist that?

These easy beer brats take about 30 minutes to prep and prepare. All you need for this gameday party food is bratwurst, beer, onions, garlic powder and crushed red pepper flakes for a little heat. Serve your beer brats on hot dog buns or pretzel brat buns with desired toppings, on top of a bed or sauerkraut, or just eat them out of the pot. So simple and so delicious.

  2. Add the bratwurst. Reduce heat to low and cook until onions are tender.
  3. When ready to serve, remove the bratwurst from the beer and cook on a hot grill until desired brownness is achieved. (This step is optional.) Serve.
