1. Heat oil in a large stockpot over medium-high heat. Add shallots, garlic, and red pepper flakes and cook until shallots just begin to soften, about 2 minutes. Add mussels, tomatoes, beer, and thyme and stir to combine. Cover and simmer until mussels have opened, about 5 minutes.Discard any mussels that don't open.
2. Divide mussels among 4 bowls. Return sauce to heat and stir in cilantro, limejuice, black pepper, and butter. Pour sauce over mussels in each bowl and serve with bread, such as our Beer Bread with Rosemary and Onion.
