    I used Yuengling and it was the perfect base for these brats. The fennel and onion added just the right flavor. Delicious!

    Beer and fennel gave a nice flavor to the brats.

    This was how my family has made them for generations , only don't waste that beer broth. Put the bratwurst back in and leave on low heat, keeps them hot and juicy. Yummy!

    Yummy!!!! I also added some sliced onion and peppers to the grill and added them to the brats when they were done. I served them with cole slaw and homemade mac and cheese and we ate them outside. Made an excellent and quick supper and I will definitely make them again....
