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.
