Octoberfest with Man Cave Craft Meats

Its October. There isn’t a much better way to spend it than with good friends and fermented foods. We tried a fun new recipe with beer, bratwurst, and sauerkraut. This is an awesome recipe and I have wanted to make it again ever since I cooked it two weeks ago. The way the beer and the beef broth add flavor to the brats is awesome!

5. Add the bratwurst back into the pan. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 15 minutes until the bratwurst is fully cooked. The beer and the beef broth will add a great flavor to the bratwurst.
