Pickled Asparagus

I'm considering pickling some asparagus but all the recipes I've found include sugar. Normally I do not like sweet pickles but I am wondering if the sugar counteracts bitterness in the asparagus. Has anyone used a pickled asparagus recipe that doesn't include sugar? Or is the sugar essential?
