“This is backwards from any time I have seen Beer Brats made. You are supposed to cook the brats in the beer BEFORE grilling them. The sulfites naturally present in the beer soften the casing so it doesn't rupture so easily when grilled. Simmering them 10-15 minutes, turning them once halfway through works really good. Never use too much beer (you don't want the beer to dilute the taste of the brats), and size your pan down so the brats are are a snug fit. I have a pan that fits 10-12 brats and uses just 1 can of beer. Have your onions (and optionally peppers) sliced up ahead. After 10-15 minutes in the beer transfer the brats to your grill. When you pull the brats from the pan to grill them, add the onions and peppers and braise until they are as tender as you desire. I do Italian and Polish sausages similarly, except for the Polish I'll often substitute a semi-sweet white wine for the beer. And for the Italian sausage tomato sauce mixed with wine, red or white as you prefer.”
