LAKE FOREST, Calif., March 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Del Taco, the nation’s second-largest Mexican quick service restaurant*, has announced yet another example of its Del Taco® Better Mex™ brand promise through a collaboration with The Boston Beer Company.
The two brands have come together to offer award-winning Samuel Adams Boston Lager® in Del Taco’s fish taco beer batter recipe because better beer makes better fish tacos. Each taco features a wild-caught Alaska Pollock fillet coated in beer batter and topped with crunchy shredded cabbage and house-made pico de gallo served with a fresh-cut lime wedge. Del Taco’s Crispy Fish Tacos are now available with two different sauces: the original style with secret sauce or with a creamy habanero sauce.
