There are so many different types of brats from around the world and I like them all. Add, beer and I'm there! I'm a mix of German and Irish so this shouldn't be a surprise. I like to eat my Kielbasa on a bun and in a variety of dishes like scalloped potatoes, soup, mac & cheese, or chili. It really can add something spicy and delicious to many meals. Brats cooked on the grill are a staple for any backyard party that I throw. Many of my friends like to add cheese, onions, or mustard, but only ketchup for me. Italian sausage is a must on pizza and spaghetti too. The spicier the sausage the better! Which is your favorite and how do you like your sausage cooked?

Well, this party is going to be cookin' and you'll want to be part of it to support the RiverPark Center and the arts!

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
