Shepherd's Pie with Guinness Recipe

There's nothing fussy about this homestyle, classic Shepherd's Pie which is exactly what we love about it! The flavor of the lamb shines against the vegetables, enhanced by the dark, full-bodied beer and perfectly matched to the creamy potatoes. A weeknight must!
