  • 2 12-ounce bottles gluten-free beer
  • 2 cups water

    • Use a 6-quart slow cooker. Put the sausages into the insert and add the onions and bell peppers. Pour in the beer and water. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Remove the brats from the slow cooker and grill lightly on an outdoor barbecue or indoor grill pan.
