 Cook at a simmer for  1 1/2 hours or until beans are just tender. While
 the beans are simmering, heat a large skillet. Mince the bacon and cook
 it until it begins to crisp. Add the onions and garlic and cook over
 medium heat for 5 minutes. Add all the spices and the ground Poblanos
 and cook another 5 minutes.  Add the Tomatoes with their juice and the
 Beer.  Simmer for half an hour. In another pan, cook the beef until the
 pink color disappears.  Drain and add it to tomatoe mixture. When the
 beans are fully cooked, drain them, reserving the liquid, and add the
 beans to the meat/tomato mixture.  Salt to taste and let the mixture
 simmer for about 1 hour.  If it is too dry, add some of the bean liquid.
