Beer Bratwursts with Dijon Coleslaw

With a name like “Beer Bratwursts With Dijon Coleslaw,” you know these sausages will pack some serious flavor. These brats are made with your favorite summer flavors, beer and coleslaw, which combine to create an unbeatable sausage recipe that’s perfect for any backyard barbecue or tailgating game day party!.

The “beer coleslaw” is a dish that can be found in many different variations. It is typically made with cabbage and mayonnaise.

When I think about grilling, I remember seeing Alex in Ann Arbor last summer. He and his pals leased a home on the outskirts of town, between train lines and a tree-lined street.

It was very quiet out there. You could walk to town in 10 minutes yet felt like you were in the middle of nowhere when you returned. A gentle wind rustled the leaves, generating a delightful whoosh as a canopy of trees swung softly above. 


In the summer, Alex and I would purchase a six-pack of Oberon and drink it while grilling on the back of the house’s enormous red deck. Big juicy hamburgers, zesty chili lime chicken skewers, and hot dogs would be on the menu.

Hot dogs (or “hutt duggs,” as my sister and I refer to them) have always been a guilty favorite of mine. Though I like meticulously prepared foods with innovative twists, I have a soft spot for plain old-fashioned hot dogs.

So I’m mixing the two today. If you will, call them upscale hot dogs. Bratwursts with a tart dijon coleslaw from my pals at Maille, fried in beer for flavor and wetness.


I ate the coleslaw as a side dish since it was that wonderful. It’s crispy and creamy on the outside, but the dijon mustard gives it a nice kick on the inside. I’m a mustard connoisseur, and Maille’s dijon was just up my alley. I’ve been putting it on my sandwich every day since I received it.

The coleslaw can keep in the fridge for up to a week. Simply make sure it’s sealed in an airtight container.


Who’s excited for grilling season? 🙂
