In a large skillet, cook the diced bacon over medium heat until crispy. Remove the cooked bacon from the skillet and set aside, leaving the bacon grease in the skillet.

Drain off any excess grease from the skillet.
Return the cooked bacon to the skillet with the beef mixture.
Stir in the beer, ketchup, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper. Mix well to combine.
