Absolutely!  I always cook as many beans as will fit in my slow cooker and
freeze what I'm not using right away in pint size zipper-type freezer bags.
 You can thaw them before using in the refrigerator if you have time, in
the microwave, or, if you're using them with some sort of liquid (like
soup, stew, sauce, etc.), you can just dump them in frozen and let them
thaw as your dish cooks.  I try to keep several kinds of beans in my
freezer and it is very, very convenient (and inexpensive!).
