Bitter stew

My SO made stew tonight and it tasted amazing. The problem is that as I went on eating it, it got more and more bitter. Is there a way to fix this? The stew has brisket, potatoes, carrots, celery, mushrooms, and red ale. This seems to be an ongoing problem with his stew and this time we figured trying a sweeter beer would help, but it still tastes bitter. Any suggestions?
