Baranoff's Bacony Beertastic Beans

Who better to have for a lunch bud than someone who loves the same food?

I made these for a potluck at work-they were a snap to make and a huge hit. The theme was a Spring picnic and they were a great compliment to the fried chicken!

8 slices uncooked bacon, cut into small pieces
1 cup chopped onion (about 1 large)
1 cup barbecue sauce (he likes Sweet Baby Ray's Hickory and Brown sugar, why mess with greatness? )
1 12 oz bottle/can of beer
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 cans (15 oz each) black beans, drained, rinsed
2 cans (15 oz each) pinto beans, drained
1 can (19 oz) cannellini beans, drained

1. In 10-inch skillet, cook bacon and onion over medium heat 7 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until bacon reaches desired doneness and drain fat.
2. Place bacon mixture and remaining ingredients in slow cooker; mix well.
3. Cover and cook on Low heat setting 4 to 6 hours.

Well healthy protein and fiber from the beans of course.
