Frijoles Borrachitos-Beans with beer

I am always browsing for new things to do with dry beans. We aren't drinkers but I had bought beer as a natural garden helper and so when I saw this recipe I was happy to be able to get clear out the fridge of the beer!
I make beans a lot because they are inexpensive and we all like them. Corrine loves beans. However these beans just didn't do it for us. Corrine made it through one small bowl and then wasn't going to even try for a second. Wouldn't make them again...
In case someone else normally loves beans with beer it had great reviews on recipezaar so here is the recipe:
1 1/4 cups dry pinto beans
1 (12 ounce) can beer
1/2 cup chopped onions
4 bacon, slices
1 can diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon snipped cilantro
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Soak beans in 4 cups water at least 5 hours.
Place in large stockpot.
Add beer and bring to a boil.
Cover and simmer 1 1/2 hours.
Cook bacon until crisp, drain and crumble.
Add bacon to beans along with onion, tomatoes, cilantro, salt and red pepper.
Cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
