The essence of football tailgating – and us Cheeseheads got this recipe down to an art! Beer  When it comes to Beer Brats, Wisconsiners, Cheeseheads, Packer Backers, me and my family, whatever you want to call us, we know how it’s done! Growing up my family had brats at every cook out, every camping trip, basically any outdoor event that involved cooking. Seriously, like hotdogs…what are those? No, we have brats!

Tomorrow is the kickoff the football season! That means Sunday’s equal football for my family. Gotta love Direct Tv’s Sunday Ticket! I get to see my Packers play every game. And being in Northern AZ it’s not like I can go down and join the tailgate party so, I am creating my own and that means Wisconsin Beer Brats.

  • Want to Prep Ahead?You can simmer the bratwurst in the onion and beer, as instructed, and keep it in the pot until ready to grill.
