I have to agree that beer is not needed. In fact I would say that it shouldn't be added. I only looked up the recipe because I haven't done it in a crock pot before. This is also called a New England boiled dinner and is considered an Irish American dish. The inclusion of beer would be more consistent with a German dish so I omitted the beer, added a few extra black peppercorns and a turnip for flavor. The only seasoning you need is the packet that comes with the brisket and a few whole black peppercorns. I also cooked it on low not high.
