I boil our brats in beer and sliced onion with a touch of garlic, usually end up freezing them after they have cooled, makes for a quick lunch. We grill them which is the best, but can fry them in a skillet if your pressed for time...

I disagree (mildly) with both the video and the other posters. I was always a "boil then grill" guy. Then, after finding a company in Wisconsin that makes sublime brats and looking at their website, they are furvent that the brats be grilled THEN boiled in beer. This was hard for me to wrap my brain around because I had been boiling before grilling for 30 years, but the flavor of the beer and onion boil is that much better when done after the grilling. Plus it keeps the brats plump and bursting with juices.
