Combine beer and sauce in a large pan.  Add cod and coat fish all over with marinade.  Marinate 10-15 minutes.

Heat boiler to high.  Remove fish from marinade, drain thoroughly, and place fish on a foil-lined baking sheet or broiler pan.  Broil on high about 4 inches from heat for 5 minutes, or until just cooked through.  To serve, spoon beans onto tortillas, top with cod, and garnish as desired.  Serve with tortilla chips.
