Slow Cooker Beer Brats

First up this season are these easy Slow Cooker Beer Brats. I love these because you can just dump everything in the slow cooker and the cooking is done. Just have your guests grab a brat out of the slow cooker when they are ready to eat! Perfect for a crowd! You can even take these on the road. Just buy a car power adaptor and you can fire up the slow cooker in the parking lot.

How to Make Beer Brats in the Crockpot

These sausages are effortless to make with only a few simple ingredients. Place sausages in the bottom of a 6-qt slow cooker. Add chopped bell peppers and onion slices. Pour a can of beer over the sausage and vegetables. Add Worcestershire sauce, garlic, salt, and pepper to the beer mixture. Cover the crock pot and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours. Remove the sausages with tongs and serve in hot dog buns.

Helpful Tips & Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the best beer for cooking brats? We used a bottle of Guinness Golden Ale for the beer in these beer brats. Any lager beer will work just fine. Just make sure to use something that you would drink and enjoy the flavor.
  • Throw the cooked sausages on a hot grill or give them a quick sear in a cast iron skillet on the stove to crisp up the outsides.
  • Can I make Beer Bratsworth on the stove? Yes! Combine all ingredients in a Dutch oven or large pot. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce to medium heat and simmer until the sausages are done.
  • Can I make Brats in advance? Yes! You can cook the sausages ahead of time and reheat them on the bbq grill or in a pan on the stovetop.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

What to Serve with Slow Cooker Beer Brats

These brats are always a hit at our cookouts. Top the sausages with your favorite condiments:  spicy mustard, bacon, mayo, sauerkraut, ketchup, relish, or beer cheese sauce. Whatever you like, pile it on top. We usually serve these with some potato salad, coleslaw, and baked beans. I hope you enjoy these brats as much as we do!
