Taco Tuesday has emerged as the favorite day of the week followed closely by Meatloaf Monday, Fish Fry Friday and Tofu Thursday. A restaurant based in Wyoming has even trademarked the term “Taco Tuesday” and files cease and desist orders every year. Read all about this fascinating history in the latest Thrillist post by Gustavo Arellano. Since I’m Mexican I consider every day Taco Tuesday so if they want to get @ me then buena suerte. Taco Tuesday! Taco Tuesday! Taco Tuesday!
Tacos and craft beer make a such perfect pairing that this year alone I have attended three craft beer and taco festivals. A hand made corn tortilla filled with al pastor or carne asada then topped with salsa, cilantro and onions in one hand and an IPA in the other is as common at a tailgate party as hot dogs, burgers or brats, and as delicious.
Since 2009 SOHO has set the bar for Gourmet taco trucks, using the best ingredients along with their on-site hand made tortillas they also cater weddings and special events. Cismontane Brewing has also been around since 2009, coincidence? Ha! They originally opened in Rancho Santa Margarita but are now permanently settled in SanTana where they brew their award winning Mesa V 7%(ABV) 60% Pilsner, 40% Riesling, 100% Genius. In 2017 Cismontane Brewing brought home a Silver Medal from The Great American Beer Festival, the beer menu is stocked with familiar styles, IPA’s, Blondes, Stouts, but the crew at Cismontane loves to experiment and a great example is their Zonifornia Native Sour Gruit 5.5%(ABV), yes that’s Gruit, I didn’t misspell fruit. This is a collab with Thunder Canyon Brewery from Tucson, Arizona. Using only herbal mixture found out in the open trails and meadows, gruit is German for herb, it’s a light but full bodied ale with zero IBU’s. Gruit is one of the oldest methods of brewing but was basically outlawed in 1516 when Germany adopted the Reinheitsgot, also know as the German Beer Purity Law that proclaimed only water, barley and hops were allowed when brewing beer. Know your brewing history!!!
Tacos aren’t the only thing brewing on Tuesday’s at Cismontane, it’s also Cask Night! Every Tuesday Cismontane brews a small batch specialty craft beer, follow them @cisbrewco on Instagram for up to the minute updates.
So here’s the deal; from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. SOHO sells their gourmet tacos for 99 cents! Even their scrumptious shrimp taco is 99 cents(the mahi taco unfortunately is regular price), the tacos are regularly priced at $3.59 each and for 99 cents you get that very same, filled to the rim, taco. SOHO doesn’t skimp on their deal, like most places I’ve been to, you show up for 99 cent or $1 tacos and they give you a tortilla barely filled with meat, you look at them like, hey, where’s the beef! and you get the, Dude, they’re 99 cents, what do you expect, womp, womp.
Cismontane Brewing and SOHO Gourmet Tacos delivers the BEST deal on Taco Tuesday(from 5pm to 6pm), how many can you eat in an hour? I once saw a homie eat 9 tacos! Yikes! I’m good with cuatro, dos de asada and dos de carnitas, with all the goodies, the salsas are all fresh and espicy and the beers are cold and enjoyable. Thank me later! BobbyKnowsTacos!
