1 teaspoon paprika or smoked paprika (optional)
12 ounces dark, malty German lager (bock, doppelbock, Dunkel, Vienna lager, Oktoberfest lager)

Put a 10-inch skillet on the stove and turn the heat to medium-high.
Add oil and allow it to become hot.
Add the brats and cook each side for about 2 minutes or until brown.
Remove from the skillet onto a clean plate.
Reduce the heat to medium, then add butter and allow it to melt.
Add the onions, thyme, paprika, brown sugar, salt, and pepper. Stir and cook for about 8 minutes or until caramelized.
Add beef broth and scrape the bottom of the skillet to get the brown bits.
