In some areas, people prefer to add some amount of beer over the brats which is known as Beer method. In this method, put your raw bratwursts on the pan and drizzle good amount of beer over them such that lowest side of the brats also covered with beer and gets fried nicely.

At the last, you can add up olive oil to make the brats crispy.
