Pair the cultured air of John Malkovich with the preachiness of Sean Penn and the looks of former Dallas Mayor Pro Tem Don Hill (with some serious dental work), and you've got an idea what kind of a dinner companion you'll have in Garrett Oliver, the craft beer guru and brewmaster at Brooklyn Brewery. He's a self-trained tastemaker, a rock star among hopheads and at 4 p.m. he'll be pairing six of his Brooklyn beers with five courses from the Meddlesome Moth's chef Chad Kelley. The event is sold out; lucky ticketholders can head to the Moth, 1621 Oak Lawn Ave. Call 214-628-7900 or visit mothinthe.net for more info.
