Sear brisket on all sides. While searing, pour about 1/3rd of the Guinness directly on to the meat.

After all sides are seared, add the rest of the Guinness to the pot, along with 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/2 carton of chicken stock. If a packet of seasoning mix was included in the brisket package, add that as well. Bring to a boil and simmer for 2 hours.
