Boiling bratwurst in beer is a thing here. I don't do it myself, but people totally do.

It's probably worth admitting what we call bratwurst probably has, at best, weak ties to actual bratwurst.

Beer-boiled brats have the advantage of not covering your grill in a quarter inch of grease.

Had real bratwurst for the first time about a week ago. Can confirm that it's absolutely nothing like US bratwurst.

Aren't US ones basically Frankfurters?

Possibly? Not sure

It's a thing a lot of places. I believe the key is the sauerkraut. The sausages don't seem to absorb much beer flavor themselves.
