No, if you boil them in good beer, it doesn't seem to matter. Generally though the local brands are good, and I've had great luck with the archer farms stuff at Tarjay.
Had some wild rice brats at Puck and Pusher's that ranked. But I agree with Veggie, local ones are pretty awesome and everything's good boiled in beer. Mmmm, makes me miss camping with Pants. Boil them in beer in the coffee pot, throw them on the rack over the fire.
My favorite brats come, interestingly enough, from my favorite butcher shop, Anoka Meat and Sausage in, well, Anoka. A fantastic little place for just about all of your traditional meat needs. They have several varieties of brats, including somewhat unusual things like jalepeno brats and something they call Tornado Brats...they even have Denver Omelet brats!Also definitely recommend their bacon...not the best bacon I've ever had, but it's close, and it's definitely the best bacon I've had for the price. :)
Ooops...meant to post a link...http://www.anokameats.com/I don't work for them or have an ownership share, I swear! :P
There's a little sausage shop up in Beaver Bay that you can visit going to/from the North Shore. I don't remember the name, but if I do, I'll post it. WIDE variety of interesting, tasty brats, sausages, etc.
