Muy Caliente! Hopped Taco Throwdown With Motley Brews Coming On 8/12
Hopped, sweet and unique – those are the types of tacos on the menu at “Hopped Taco Throwdown,” a heated competition and all-inclusive craft beer experience. Chefs will vie for their innovative creations to be crowned the top tacos in three categories from 8 – 11 p.m. on Saturday, August 12.
Motley Brews, the creators of Great Vegas Beer Festival, have gathered some of the city’s most innovative chefs to step out of their culinary comfort zones to create tasty and inventive tacos. Tacos will be judged in three categories, including: Hopped Taco, for best-beer-infused taco; Taco Loco, for most creative taco; and Taco Dulce, for best dessert taco.
A sampling of competing tacos includes:
La Vaca Borracha, a braised short rib taco with house-made pickles and fresh herbs on a mole tortilla, created by The Black Sheep
Drunk, Drunk, Goose, a split-roasted goose taco with El Jefe mole served in a blue corn tortilla from Citizens Kitchen and Bar
Oh Not So Sweet, a dessert taco made with crispy sweetbreads, guanciale and marmalade, by FIX Restaurant & Bar
The Drunk Rabbit, with lager-braised rabbit, jicama, passion fruit and summer truffle, created by Herringbone
Choco Taco, made with a churro taco shell filled with horchata ice cream, barley wine dulce de leche, candied malted barley and chocolate drizzle, by Tacos & Beer
The Italian Stallion, a crispy salumi taco shell with Pecorino Toscano, olive and fennel salsa and pepperoncini, by Buddy V’s
