Slow-Cooker Beef Stew

Today is a FRIDAY NIGHT-IN (versus a night out!) for my husband and I, therefore, I need to make something with a WOW factor. I thought of doing a beef stew minus the tomato sauce for my hubby who's a meat-lover. So, I went out with my dog and got a bottle of a local dark beer, Cervesa Negra in lieu of the tomato sauce. Well, it turned out superbly well! Both my husband and I got some second helpings of it!
