Place beans in a large stock pot and cover with water. Allow beans to soak for several hours. Meanwhile brown ground beef; stew meat, onion and garlic in a large skillet. Drain excess fat and set aside. Rinse and drain water from soaked beans and place in a large pot and cover with 6 C. of water. Cook over low to medium heat for about 1 hour. Place meat mixture in a crock-pot with cooked beans. Add tomato paste, diced tomatoes, chili powder, beer and hot sauce to the pot and simmer for several hours before serving. You can adjust the heat in the recipe with both the chili powder and the hot sauce. Some chili powders come with added ground hot pepper that can really spice up this dish. Other options are to use regular chili powder and supplement it with some ground hot pepper or to float a couple of dried whole hot peppers in the chili as it cooks.
