Hays co-owner Ryan Hays says, "City Star Brewing provided our meat managers with several of their fantastic beers to experiment with in the process of making a unique and outstanding Beer Brat. After a couple weeks of sampling some different recipes, we think we’ve come up with the perfect product. A Beer Bratwurst, made with pork marinated in Bandit Brown Beer overnight, and ground with our special spices makes this the perfect bratwurst for your weekend barbecue. Pick some up today at your local Hays Market in Johnstown or Berthoud Colorado, you won’t be disappointed!!"
