    1. 1
      Arrange a rack in the center of the oven; reheat to 400°.
    2. 2
      Trim excess fat from the chicken and season it inside and out with 1 teaspoon salt.
    3. 3
      Scatter the onions, carrot, parsnips, sage, cloves, and cinnamon stick in a 6-quart ovenproof pot (such as an enameled cast iron pot); sprinkle over this the rest of the salt, and set the chicken on top of the vegetables.
    4. 4
      Put the pot on the stove, pour in the stock, beer, and apple cider, and bring to a simmer over medium heat.
    5. 5
      Cook, uncovered, for about 15 minutes on top of the stove.
    6. 6
      Put the pot in the oven, and roast the chicken for about 30 minutes, basting with the pan juices two or three times.
    7. 7
      Cover the chicken with a sheet of foil to prevent overbrowning, and roast another 30 minutes.
    8. 8
      Remove the foil, and roast another 20-30 minutes, basting frequently, until the chicken and vegetables are cooked through and tender.
    9. 9
      Remove the chicken to a warm platter, and surround with the vegetables.
    10. 10
      Bring the pan juices to a boil on top of the stove, and cook until reduced by half.
    11. 11
      Carve the chicken at the table, and spoon some of the pan juices on top.
