One of my favorite things about visiting Greater Raleigh breweries is learning more about the local food truck scene. Most breweries have a unique food truck offering during the week and on weekends. I paid a visit to Big Boss Brewing Company last weekend to try one of its newest N.C. brews, paired alongside a taco from Sol Tacos.
Big Boss Brewing Company recently released Tail Wind, an American IPA at 4.5-percent ABV. Tail Wind is a session beer, which means this beer will be easy to drink all summer long. Light in color with a perfect amount of hops, this beer was the perfect choice to pair with some delicious tacos.
Sol Tacos is one of the newest food trucks to the Greater Raleigh scene. It's hard to miss this lime green truck and Chef Andy Schuamann's mohawk. Andy was previously a chef at Vivace and decided to follow his dream of opening a food truck. Sol Tacos is committed to using local ingredients whenever possible and offers gourmet Southern tacos, served on freshly pressed tortilla shells.
I tried just about everything on the menu at Sol Tacos. Luckily, I had a few friends to help me devour all of the delicious food. My favorite taco was the buttermilk fried flounder. The fish was crispy and topped with cilantro sour cream, lettuce and a pickled radish salad.
I also enjoyed the chicken "nachos" taco and the beer braised pulled pork taco. Depending on what brewery Sol Tacos is visiting, Chef Anthony will braise the pork in that particular brewery's beer. Both options were full of flavor and my friends and I were arguing over who would get the last bite!
