For a limited time, Greenpointers can enjoy birria with their beer. Yesterday, August 16th, marked the first day of Taqueria Nixtamal’s pop-up at Threes Brewing (113 Franklin St.). The Mexican pop-up will relieve Threes’s regular food vendor, The Meat Hook, until August 29th. 

Stop in to enjoy birria tacos and more, all paired perfectly with refreshing Threes beer. Nixtamal’s pop-up menu highlights the traditional Mexican dish of birria, a stew of juicy meat, and includes a sampling of popular appetizers, mini tacos, nachos, and sliders.
