These would be fun to serve at a beer tasting. Beer flights are just the thing. Make sure to include some non-alcoholic alternatives for your guests who aren’t interested in drinking. Serving various types of cider is a great non-alcoholic tasting option.

Preheat the oven to broil. For the bratwursts, heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a KitchenAid® Tri-Ply Copper 3.5-Quart Sauté with Lid over medium high heat. Brown the brats on each side. Remove the sausages and add the onions to the pan. Sauté the onions until they are soft and are slightly browned.
