I simmered two briskets in a slow cooker on low for nearly ten hours and the meat was so tender it was almost impossible to slice without falling apart! The leftovers (and I can't believe I had any) sliced easily once chilled. I personally felt the beer flavor was overwhelming, so about halfway through cooking I bailed out half the beer/juice and replaced it with very hot water. I'll try one beer (or none, or one not as strong as Guinness) next time. However, if you're a fan of that rich beer flavor, go for it. Those of you who complained that this recipe was bland should go to a doctor and have your tastebuds examined. Definitely worth trying!
