I wold not recommend it, it would become a mess. Also, growing beans for drying requires a lot of space to get a harvest that will make any difference in your annual needs. Beans are relatively inexpensive to purchase and will keep for a long, long time.
Here is a link to the Rookie Topic about growing beans for drying.

Camprn is good and wise.

Beans love to ramble. The longer the season, the bigger bush beans get. They start shading out their neighbors (I tend to forget that in spring)

The only exception I would have to the advice is the chance to grow heirloom dry beans. Do grow those if you get a chance but if you just want pinto, kidney or black beans, they are seriously inexpensive at the store.

I've grown Whidbey Island (Washington State) Rockwell's (bush) in a 4x4. It was kewl, but it is a lot of work to release so few beans from their dry pods. In a bad year I only get 2 cups of beans from a 4x4. Not really worth the space they take. Trouble is, you cannot know what kind of summer you will have until you are into it. And God help the husband who picks the green pods thinking the little woman forgot to pick from that garden.

Debs....who grows her pole beans on a pole…. sort of.

I like to grow beans that are good for snap beans as well as dry beans. I think they are called duel purpose beans. This allows me to pick green beans for a while, then when for whatever reason I stop picking or they get too big or tuff I leave them for dry beans. I do 4, 3 by 3 foot squares and got about three cups each. I grew provider, painted pony both bush varieties, and Cherokee trail of tears a pole bean.
