Tacodeli is making it easier to bring home its oh-so-spicy salsa doña sauce home: the sauce is now available the take-home form of a 32-ounce growler. The catch? There are only 100 growlers available, so people will have to enter a lottery for a chance to purchase the $25 bottle. Once the salsa is all gone, people will be able to refill the growler with beers from Pinthouse Pizza with a half-off coupon. The lottery opens on Friday, December 8 and runs through Tuesday, December 12.
