The flavors in this all come together nicely. Instead of draining the brat grease I used it instead of butter. Made sense to me. Easy and different dip. The beer flavor comes through pretty strong but doesn't over power the whole dip. Served with Soft pretzels. Read More

I used sharp and white extra sharp cheese and added diced onions while browning the brats. Could have used only 1/8 cup of flour. Great flavor! Read More

I suggest upping the fat a bit to make a smooth paste before adding the liquids. My only change was not finding cheese curds and using 4oz German beer cheese. Using Johnsonville Beer Brats and McCormick reduced sodium brown gravy as pork gravy was not available. That all worked fine. Ty Read More
