The Common's 20 beers and 20 wines are all curated by Véronique Rivest, one of the world's most-celebrated sommeliers, whose titles include best Sommelier of the Americas (2012), and 2nd place at the World's Best Sommelier competition (2013). Surrounding The Common are food kiosks run by some of Winnipeg's best restaurants and food trucks, where dinners can savour Argentinian empanadas, farm-to-table pizzas and burgers, nationally acclaimed Italian, baked goods where the local heritage wheats are milled onsite, sushi and Filipino cuisine (to name but a few). It all makes for an ideal amount of options for large groups, while new for summer 2019 is a 250-seat outdoor patio which will be serviced by its own massive bar. | 204.987.4374 Winnipeg's culinary and craft beer scene Dwayne Larson Tyler Walsh
