Guinness Brisket

I asked my friend Becca for this recipe several years ago so that I could make it for my love. Since then I've made a few tweaks, but we still love this as much as the first time we tried it. This brisket is perfect for a chilly fall day and super easy for a get together. Serve this up with a side of your favorite crusty bread or salad. I want to warn you that this recipe will need to sit in the slow cooker all day, but the tender goodness is worth the wait, enjoy!
