These Slow Cooker Beer Brats are a life changer! And Harmons sells THE BEST brats I have ever had in Utah! They are always made fresh which, hello, is totally awesome. They have many different flavors, but my favorite is the original. You just can’t go wrong with a good old pork bratwurst! Local people, you definitely need to try them out. I promise, you won’t be disappointed. Especially since they are on sale right now! They are having an awesome 5 for $20 meat sale, and yes, bratwursts are on the sale, I am so STOKED.

We usually have some friends and family over for at least one football game every week, and sometimes it’s hard to cook that much food! But this is one of my new favorite recipes. It is SO EASY and you can make as many bratwursts as you want and it doesn’t add any more time! The brats get completely cooked in the slow cooker and all you have to do is throw them on the grill to get that nice brown color. No more worrying about how long you cook them on the grill until they are done! You can serve them with any toppings you want, or just good old ketchup and mustard work just fine. These Slow Cooker Beer Brats…they have changed my life this football season!
As for the beer, I know some people may be cautious about the alcohol content. I have found a non-alcoholic version that works just fine! It is the Coor’s brand and I also found it at Harmons.
I hope your football weekend is fantastic and full of amazing game day food!
