Irish Death Slow-Cooked Roast

A great home-cooked meal from my youth often involved the Crock Pot. Slow-cooking with it meant throwing a bunch of good ingredients into the pot, turn it on low, and eat 8 hours later. This slow-cooked chuck roast is a very simple recipe and tasty recipe that includes the Quilter’s Irish Death from the Iron Horse Brewing Company. The meat came out fork-tender and bursts with wholeness tastiness.
