We love beer brats and sauerkraut and this is an easy crock pot recipe.  Just throw in all the ingredients and forget about it. Beer brats and sauerkraut is great to serve at any gathering, for game day or anytime you have friends over.  If you don’t want to do the brats in the crock pot, you can do them on the grill and just do the sauerkraut in the crock pot.
