I used a Sirloin Tip roast, and I added 4 cloves of garlic, half an onion, and Portebello mushrooms. For the Beer I used a La Trappe Quadrupel Trappist Ale. The roast turned out perfect! The gravy was simply amazing, rich and complex!
I suggest using a Trappist, or Belgian Ale. These beers rival Red Wine in complexity! Trappists and Belgians have notes of figs, Dates, Plums, and other dried fruits.
If you do not have access to Trappists ales, then use any other beer that is rich in malts. Such as Stouts, Porters, and Brown ales. DO NOT USE an India Pale Ales, as they have high hop contents and will make your roast bitter. Also lighter beers will add virtually nothing to your gravy!
