In a large heavy pot sweat ham hock and bacon in oil over medium-low heat until bacon begins to render some fat. Add onions and garlic and saute until onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in beer and season with Tabasco, salt, pepper and crushed red pepper. Bring to a boil and stir in greens, a large handful at a time. When all greens are added, reduce heat to simmering, cover and cook until greens are very tender, about 15 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning before serving.
