Have dinner and beers with famed author, Brooklyn Brewery brewmaster Garrett Oliver at The Common Table Frisco this Wednesday night

When it comes to serious brews and serious food, the folks at The Common Table don’t mess around. The original Uptown Dallas location has long been regarded as one of the city’s true gastropubs, serving that rare combination of great American small-batch craft beers and food you actually want to eat. Now chef/partner Rodman Shields is bringing that same commitment to The Common Table’s new location at The Star in Frisco. He’s tapped author and beer expert Garrett Oliver to host a beer dinner this Wednesday that you’re gonna want to attend. It’s the first in a recurring “Ale Star” dinner series.

Oliver has quite the resume: brewmaster of Brooklyn Brewery, editor-in-chief of The Oxford Companion to Beer, author of The Brewmaster’s Table and winner of the 2014 James Beard Award for Excellent Wine, Beer or Spirits Professional.

He’ll be hosting the dinner with Shields, who’s put together a full-stop menu that includes lamb carpaccio, Manhattan clam chowder, and a giant A5 Wagyu tomahawk chop slathered with bone marrow butter. Oliver will talk about the relationship of food and beer. “There’s literally no one else in the world we would want more to kick this series off,” says Shields.

Tickets for the 7p.m. dinner are $85 per person. Grab them here.
