This recipe for
Root Beer Pulled Pork Sandwich is written for 8 hours in a slow cooker. I'm considering doing it for an hour in a pressure cooker.
I'll paraphrase the cooker ingredients at the click through:
1 pork tenderloin
12 oz. can of Root Beer
Salt and smoke flavor
Would the the carbonated liquid under pressure be a concern? I think there should be no problems. But when tinkering with pressure, a second opinion is prudent.

Every pressure cooker comes with a safety valve.
So even if not most of the CO2 is lost during pouring and heating, the safety valve will make sure nothing bad happens.
That you should always make sure the valve is in good condition and working is a general pressure cooker rule independent of the liquid used.

Think about the thickness of a soda can and the thickness of a pressure cooker. That, plus pressure release valves on the pressure cooker's lid will do exactly that: release pressure. So, no need to worry about pressure cooking soda. Though, I personally would not.
I published a recipe pressure cooking and entire chicken in beer 5 years ago - and despite it being a very popular recipe (aka cooked in many pressure cooker kinds by different people) I haven't gotten any reports or problems.
