Hefeweizen-Soaked Beer Brats

“Poked ’em and Soaked ’em” in a wonderful new (to me) Schöfferhofer Weizen Hefeweizen brew this year- Grapefruit!

Brats turned out fantastically delicious! This beer tastes wonderful- not too fruity and just the right amount of flavor. So glad I tried it. Spotted it at Whole Foods in Naperville. Won’t be the last time! 

I found some perfect brioche buns, and toasted them lightly in the oven. 

I did not soak the brats overnight this year, and they still tasted just as fantastic. 

Wishing eveyone a safe and happy Independence Day weekend! Happy 4th!
