Brat Hot Tub Party

Nothing says “party” quite like a bratwurst. Except for a hot tub. Which is why we’ve combined the two for the ultimate party pack party play. Party on, party people. 

That’s right, we’re taking two icons of celebration and merging them into one monumental party phenomenon. Each brat, simmering in its beer-infused hot tub, is not just food; it’s a conversation starter, a laughter inducer, the centerpiece of your gathering. This is where memories are made, where the simple act of grilling becomes an extravaganza of flavors, friendship, and fun.  

What’s the hold up? It’s time to usher in the most electrifying, flavor-packed bash. So, fire up that grill, pop open a can (or two) of beer, and let’s make this the most sizzling, savory shindig of the season.  



  1. Place foil baking pan over medium heat on a gas or charcoal grill, add butter. Grill until butter is melted, like your heart will be after falling in love with this recipe.
  2. Add the onions, bay leaves and peppercorns; cover with foil and cook 20 minutes, stirring occasionally until onions are tender.
  3. Add beer; hold, uncovered on grill. Grill lemon halves, squeeze juice into hot tub; add lemon halves.
  4. When brats are cooked, place into brat tub. No matter how juicy it looks, please do not attempt to climb in the tub.
  5. Serve each brat with onions on a bun and let the tastebud party commence.
