Slow Cooker Pork Butt in Beer

Slow Cooker Pork Butt in Beer Sandwich

I bought a nice bone-in pork butt the other day on sale and decided to try another slow-cooker recipe; pork butt in beer. This pork butt was about five pounds and this is a very simple recipe. I made sandwiches with the pork and the beer made the meat so tender.

What beer did I use?

I had some Oktoberfest beer laying around, but any amber lager would work equally as well. You could also use a non-hoppy amber ale, but lager is what I had around.

I didn't want the chocolate or coffee flavors of a stout or porter, but I also wanted a little more character than a blond lager would give. The choice is yours though and any lager would work equally as well to slow cook the pork butt.
