For the Sauerkraut:

  1. Simmer sauerkraut, beer, and sugar in a large skillet over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, and set aside.

For the Hot Dogs:

  1. Bring the beer and sugar to a simmer in a medium skillet over medium-low heat. Add the hot dogs and let simmer until the dogs get plump, about 8 minutes. There should be some remaining beer syrup in the pan. Keep it! You’ll need it for later.
  2. Grill the hot dogs on medium for about 7 minutes.
  3. If you’d like, you could toast your hot dog bun on the grill.
  4. Build your dog! Top with sauerkraut and mustard. Enjoy!
