Mix all dry rub ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl.
Rinse and pat dry pork. Rub generously with dry rub.
In a dutch oven, heat the olive oil until very hot. Sear all sides of the meat, until evenly browned (roughly 10-15 minutes).
Pour the beer over the meat, add the minced garlic and cover and reduce heat to medium low.
Cook for 2 1/2 - 3 hours, turning the meat over periodically. Cook until meat is tender and falling apart.
Remove meat and let rest on a cutting board for roughly 3-5 minutes. Shred using two forks. Return pork to the braising liquid and allow to simmer for about 5 minutes. Remove the meat from the dutch oven and discard the liquid.
We used a Scotch Ale from Bellevue Brewing Company, which worked beautifully in this recipe. Delicious to drink and flavorful to cook with.
