In a medium skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat, turning occasionally, until crisp, about 8 minutes. Transfer the bacon to paper towels to drain, leaving and fat in the skillet. Add the cabbage to the skillet and cook until pale golden on 1 side, about 5 minutes. Stir in the beer and cover the skillet. Cook until the cabbage is tender, about 15 minutes, then uncover the skillet and cook until all the liquid has evaporated, 3 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste then transfer to a serving dish. Crumble the bacon over the cabbage and serve.
