The GOODS from Tacofino
Vancouver, BC | The cookie crumbles in the craft beer community this month when Tacofino joins forces with the brew crews at Superflux and Four Winds to create a new custom small-batch Diablo Cookie Porter, available beginning November 21 at Tacofino restaurants in Vancouver and Victoria, as well as Vancouver’s Strathcona Brewing Company, where the enigmatic minds behind Superflux’s sought-after lineup of beers currently ply their trade.
In celebration of the collaboration, Tacofino invites both beer and taco fans alike to sample the new porter at a happy hour event at Tacofino Gastown in Blood Alley Square on Tuesday, November 21 from 4 to 7 p.m.
The result of a partnership between Tacofino and Superflux Brewing Company partners Adam Henderson and Matt Kohlen, the recipe for the custom brew was developed in concert with brewers Brent Mills and Kylo Hoy of Delta’s Four Winds Brewing Company and takes its cues from Tacofino’s famous Diablo Cookie, offering notes of vanilla, cayenne pepper, ginger and cinnamon in a dark chocolatey porter.
A staple on the Tacofino menu since the brand’s inception in 2009, the Diablo Cookie is an original creation by Tacofino co-founder and owner Kaeli Robinsong and is available at all of Tacofino’s roaming food trucks and five brick-and-mortar locations in Vancouver and Victoria, as well as the original Tacofino Cantina in Tofino.
“This collaboration began with a mutual admiration between our brands. All of us at Tacofino have been fans of the quality small-batch beer that Superflux and Four Winds are producing,” said Gino Di Domenico, Managing Partner of Tacofino’s Vancouver-based operations. “Both breweries have played a big role in the craft-beer movement in Vancouver and we’re excited to partner with them.”

Tacofino was born out of a desire to create a unique dining experience by offering quality, freshness and affordability with an environmental and nutritional conscience. Fast “slow” food is a concept that really appeals to us, so we make everything from scratch and with love, but without the wait. Our menu is inspired by our world travels, taking the Baja-style taco to another level. Our truck has been a phenomenon in Tofino; it is vibrant, bright orange, with local artist Lee Robinsong’s painting of the Virgin de Guadalupe holding a taco. It is an homage to the birthplace of the taco, Mexico and Baja California. We now have trucks in Vancouver and Victoria as well; and most recently, two new restaurants in Vancouver, one on East Hastings and one in Gastown.
