Make this ONLY if you truly like the flavor of flat beer. It permeates the sausage and onions. We tried this at our extended family's annual "Oktoberfest" and antique train ride and NO ONE (out of 23 people) liked them. We'd prefer our bratwurst simmered in water or chicken broth over beer then grilled. Just be forewarned that the beer flavor really does show through on this recipe, and sort of ruins (rather than complements) the beautiful bratwurst flavor. We'll stick to drinking the beer.

This recipe is really flavorful. I used enough beer to cover the amount of brats that I used. After grilling the brats, I smothered the brats with the onions in a roll. Delicious. I've used this recipe three years in a row for an Ocktoberfest party. The recipe is definitely a keeper.

I think this is a waste of beer. You really only need one or two bottles to steam the sauage. Same effect but not over powering.
