Guinness Beef Stew

Fall is my favorite season.  It has the perfect not-too-hot, not-too-cold weather, beautiful turning leaves, and of course the best food.  Pumpkin pie, roasted turkey, cranberry sauce, hot chocolate, mashed potatoes, and best of all, beef stew.  I have been looking forward to the fall all summer and couldn’t resist making a pre-season beef stew.  This recipe has been in my family for years.
