The Brewer’s Table has announced that Zach Hunter will serve as the executive chef at the restaurant brewery from industry veteran Jake Maddux. Hunter previously served as chef de cuisine at modern Southern restaurant Fixe in downtown Austin.

As The Brewer’s Table, which will focus on dishes from a wood-fired grill, eyes its 2017 opening, it will host a series of pop-up dinners in Austin and outside of the state. The series begins on October 30 at Franklin Barbecue with a free multi-course dinner paired with local house brews, with tickets available via a lottery system administered through The Brewer’s Table’s mailing list. Sign up at by October 25.

Following that dinner, The Brewer’s Table will head to Colorado (New Belgium Brewing) on November 9, then California and New York in the next two months.

“For the dinner at Franklin we will be paying homage to the space as guests will make their way through the counter-service line, grabbing a bite directly from our team, before flowing into a service experience more in line with what guests can expect from The Brewer’ Table,” Maddux said.

The Brewer’s Table also includes former Qui general manager Bill Mann, most recently of Olamaie; consulting chef Jorge Hernández, also a Qui veteran who worked for years under groundbreaking chef José Andrés; and head brewer Drew Durish, formerly of Live Oak Brewing.
