It can be interesting when companies combine their products/efforts. Sometimes it works…sometimes it doesn’t.
For example, Budweiser and Nascar. Now I recognize that many Nascar fans enjoy a Bud from time to time but the whole drinking and driving thing just doesn’t mix well. Or Dodge and the Lingeria Football League. A fine idea for about 3 minutes until somebody at Dodge gets a clue. Unfortunately that was about 2 minutes too late for the press release to be stopped.
Examples of some business combinations that make sense. Doritos and Taco Bell’s Locos Tacos! Is there a hotter fast food item combination introduced in our lifetime? None that I can think of off the top of my head.
Before you get to the review below, take a minute and look over the label for this product. I know I’ve said it before but companies that start with great, fresh ingredients, season them properly, and then let the quality of the meat speak for itself almost always turn out the best products. That label is a perfect example.
Which brings us to today’s review of Tommyknocker Beer Brats by Continental Sausage Company in Denver, Colorado. Continental was kind enough to send us an amazing array of their products so keep an eye out here for many reviews of this companies products in the next few months. I will say that we have been very impressed by both the recipes and clean ingredients in the offerings of this 40+ year old Denver provider and we think you will be too.
Made with Tommyknocker Butthead Bock, I knew from the initial aroma coming from the pan that this was going to be a good sausage as long as they took it easy on the beer. This sausage was well spiced with a very nice but not over powering presence of a fine beer. The malty tones and traditional brat flavors meshed perfectly into a sausage that could easily become your everyday, go to sausage on a roll.
A great example of a beer brat that gets it right, I highly recommend you give this one a shot at your next backyard brat fest.
