It’s no joke: Taco Libre’s downtown St. Paul location in the former American Burger Bar space is slated to open April 1, and the fast-casual concept will not only serve Mexican street food, but also feature a 24-tap self-serve beer wall.

Taco Libre, which has three locations across the Twin Cities, has partnered with iPourIt, the self-serve beverage dispense technology company with more than 150 locations, to offer pour-your-own local craft beers, margaritas and Pulque, the Mexican beverage touted as the oldest fermented drink known to North America.

“We believe iPourIt is the perfect partner for Taco Libre. We are impressed by its user-friendly simplicity. Our match-up creates a destination of unique experiences for our guests,” said Taco Libre owner Brad Ireland in a news release.

The beer wall will allow customers to pour their own beverages while choosing from different pour sizes and price points.

Expect a menu similar to the ones at Taco Libre’s West St. Paul, Oakdale and Edina locations, including street tacos, tortas, bowls, platters and the signature Machete — the giant, shareable creation of proteins and fixings stuffed in a thick corn tortilla.

American Burger Bar closed last fall and the owners, who also run Taco Libre, have spent the last few months transforming the space.
