Quick question, do you boil the hot dogs using beer only or a mixture of water and beer?

I remember a long time ago someone boiled hot dogs using a mixture of water and beer but I wasn't aware of the mixture ratio and since it was for a group of at least 20 it was a big pot and a lot of hot dogs. The only thing I noticed was the hot dogs were wider than usual.
