Very good! I found that using a little less beer makes it less soupy and more of a side dish. I also added cumin, some cayenne, and red pepper flakes to give it a little more flavor.

We thought these were really good. They were a bit bland when done cooking, but once I added some salt, they were perfect. I liked that they were simmered in beer, which gave the beans a nice fl...
