Common Table Celebrates Three Years of Beer. Kegs Expected at Weeklong Party.

The Common Table turns 3 years old this week, and they certainly need some spankings to celebrate the moment. When this spot opened, it was perched on the crest of the local craft beer scene and has since earned a solid spot in the center of the movement.

This week the Common Table has a bevy of events and tappings. Tonight (BrewsDay Tuesday) they'll have DEBC's Wealth and Taste and Numb Comfort, Peticolas' Alfred Brown and Community's Trinity Triple.

Wednesday CT will feature Firestone Walker's Parabola and Avec Les Bon Voeux.

Thursday is Ballast Point's Habanero Sculpin and (512) Whiskey Barrel Double Pecan Porter, and the unofficial craft beer band will be there -- Fish Fry Bingo.

Saturday the festivities culminate into a staggered schedule of tappings that begins at 1 p.m with Deschutes' Abyss, Firestone Walker's Double IPA, then Founders' Devil Dancer at 4 p.m.

Live music on Saturday is courtesy of Fox and the Bird at 3 pm. and Whiskey Folk Ramblers at 10 p.m.
