Tacofino Launches Beer Dinner Series Starting With Red Truck Beer
What goes better than tacos and beer? It’s a match that can’t be denied, but what’s in that taco matters when it comes to food and beer pairing, so lucky for us the powers that know have joined together to offer a variety of tacos with the beers that best pair.
To promote this dinner, Red Truck and Tacofino delivered some tacos and beer last Friday, great marketing that definitely got our attention. They included a sample pack of red truck and the flavourful steak tacos from the menu that will be presented this Thursday. There should be a beer and taco delivery every Friday!
Here’s the details on the dinner. On Thursday, January 25, Red Truck Beer Company and Tacofino will team up for a 5-course dinner at our Hastings Sunrise location. With two seatings at 6pm and 8:30pm, the dinner will showcase Red Truck beer paired with brand new Tacofino dishes created by Executive Chef Stefan Hartmann and Head Chef James You.

- Four Winds Brewing Co. on Thursday, May 31;
- Port Moody Brewers Row (The Parkside Brewery, Moody Ales, Yellow Dog Brewing Co. and Twin Sails Brewing) on Thursday, June 28.
The new beer dinner series follows in the wake of Tacofino’s recent partnership with breweries Superflux and Four Winds to produce a new custom small-batch Diablo Cookie porter based on Tacofino’s famous dessert cookie as well as a sold-out collaborative dinner with 33 Acres Brewing Co. that took place at the Tacofino Hastings location in November. Since the dinner, the location has added additional beer taps behind the bar and extended its hours to offer daily happy hour specials from 3 to 6 p.m between lunch and dinner seven days a week.
