1978 Beer Beef Stew

A beef stew has all of the autumn feels as the weather starts to cool off. This stew has a wonderful flavor added by a good beer of your choice. A dark ale, stout, or porter works well with this beef stew. Guinness is a good option to try unless you already have a personal favorite. I enjoy this stew served over a bed of roasted vegetables such as baby potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, and brussels sprouts.
