4 lb fresh Prince Edward Island Mussels, rinsed (discard any opened)
8 strips bacon, finely chopped
1 small onion, finely chopped
½ cup brown sugar
¼ cup white wine vinegar
1 can Upstreet Libra Pale Ale Non-Alcoholic Beer
¼ cup fresh dill, chopped
freshly cracked pepper, to taste
lemon wedges, to garnish
Heat large stockpot or Dutch Oven over medium-high heat. Add chopped bacon and cook 4 - 5 min, until edges turn crispy. Tip: if bottom of pot is browning too much, add 1 tbsp of water at a time, as needed.
Next add onion and cook until softened, approximately 2 - 3 min.
Then add brown sugar, white wine vinegar, and Libra Pale Ale and bring mixture to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low; simmer uncovered 4 -5 min. until liquid has reduced by about half.
Add mussels, cover, and cook until shells open, about 5-7 min. Discard any unopened mussels.
Portion into four bowls, pour over remaining sauce, sprinkle with dill, and top with pepper and lemon wedges. Serve with crusty bread, if desired.
