Sapporo Beer for summer grilling recipes

Sapporo Beer is a favored ingredient in slow cooker recipes now that summer is here. The slow cooker temporarily eliminates the need to use your oven on a hot day and is great for braising meats including ribs, chicken, steak and even chili and on the non-meat side, a cold dish like Gazpacho.
