TACOFINO HASTINGS TEAMS UP WITH VANCOUVER CRAFT BREWERIES TO HOST SERIES OF BEER DINNERS IN 2018
The beloved West Coast phenomenon known as Tacofino will partner with a six-pack of local breweries at its Hastings location (2327 E. Hastings St.) to host a monthly series of five-course Beer Dinners beginning January 25 and continuing throughout the spring and summer.
Pairing Tacofino’s eclectic, Baja-by-way-of-West Coast cuisine with a variety of beers from each participating brewery, the series will kick off on Thursday, January 25 when Executive Chef Stefan Hartmann and Head Chef James You create a custom, five-course menu in collaboration with Red Truck Beer Company to host the inaugural event. Tickets to each dinner — which features two seatings at 6 and 8:30 p.m. — are available for $50 per person inclusive of tax, gratuity and ticketing fees.
The beer dinner series continues with:
Tofino Brewing Company on Thursday, February 22;
Steel & Oak Brewing Co. on Thursday, March 29;
Strange Fellows Brewing Company on Thursday, April 26;
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.
“We’re big fans of the awesome breweries we have in BC and this beer dinner series is our way of showing our support of Vancouver’s beer culture,” says Matt Fidler, General Manager at Tacofino Hastings. “We can’t wait to showcase some of these local labels at our Hastings location, where we’re surrounded by incredible breweries.”
Tickets to each of the Tacofino Beer Dinner Series events on January 25 (Red Truck); February 22 (Tofino); March 29 (Steel & Oak); April 26 (Strange Fellows); May 31 (Four Winds); and June 28 (Port Moody Brewery Row) are available for $50 per person inclusive of tax, gratuity and ticketing fees via Eventbrite..
