No sensible person can resist taco and beer night. But if I told you the beer tasted like a taco, you might want a second to think the offer over – even if it was your favorite “al pastor” variety.
Beers that are supposed to have similarities to tacos are not unheard of – with well over 4,000 breweries in the US, pretty much every ridiculous beer idea has been tried at this point – but the appropriately-named Ale Pastor from Austin’s Last Stand Brewing appears to take the mashup of beer and taco to new culinary heights. Attempting to recreate more than your standard Taco Bell offering, this brew is intended to boast some of the sweet and spicy traits of an actual al pastor taco – pork, pineapples, dried chilies and other spices.
