Place oven rack 6 inches from heat. Preheat broiler to HIGH. Separate tops from bottoms of brat buns; cut each into 4 pieces to make 24 pieces total. Place on a large rimmed baking pan. Lightly spray both sides of bun pieces with nonstick cooking spray. Broil 3 to 4 minutes or until toasted; cool.
Toss together Cheddar cheese, Swiss cheese, and flour in a medium bowl; set aside.
Heat olive oil in a 10-inch cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add bratwurst. Cook until brown (165°), stirring and breaking into crumbles. Remove half of the crumbles and set aside.
Stir in evaporated milk, amber ale, and Dijon mustard to remaining bratwurst crumbles in skillet. Bring to a simmer; remove from heat. Whisk in cheese mixture until melted. Garnish with reserved bratwurst crumbles and sliced green onions, if desired. Serve immediately.
