For a couple of years now, I’ve partnered with Four Corners Brewing Co., maker of my go-to IPA, El Chingón, for taco events. I can’t seem to stop. Sharing tacos comes with my job description. The last one was Taco Night, a trompo taco-and-beer fiesta featuring Dallas’ best practitioners of tacos al pastor and tacos de trompo. Next up I’m helping out with Four Corners’ third-annual Dia de los Puercos on Sunday, November 1.
Inspired by the tradition of Día de los Muertos, it’s a day where we invite people to come celebrate “el día de hoy”…the “here and now”…with friends and family. For us, that simply includes fun people, great music, pork-centric eats and some tasty brews.
In the past, Four Corners has hosted special guests (local favorite) Kent Rathbun and (Carolina barbecue legend) Sam Jones preparing whole hog barbecue. This year, they’re going street style with five of DFW’s top taqueros preparing tacos de trompo, carnitas, tacos al pastor and pozole.
Four Corners will have some special brews including newly released Soul Child Brown Ale (brewed with roasted coconut and Texas pecans) and La Lechuza S’more Stout (brewed with graham crackers, cocoa nibs and lactose).
Perhaps best of all, Dia de los Puercos is a family-friendly taco party.
