Shop, Indulge and get into the Holiday Spirit at Dovetail Brewery’s Second Annual Holiday Market, December 16
Get into the holiday spirit with good friends, shopping and beer at Dovetail Brewery’s Second Annual Holiday Market. The event features craft artisans selling a variety of goods that make perfect gifts for everyone, from noon to 7 p.m. Saturday, December 16 in Dovetail’s upstairs barrelhouse loft (1800 W. Belle Plaine at N. Ravenswood; 773-683-1414).
Shop until you drop, and then take a seat downstairs in the taproom and recharge with any of Dovetail’s highly praised beers including their Holiday Bock. The Holiday Bock is stronger than your typical lager, with a robust malt character and a darker hue. Noble hops balance but do not get in the way of the malty flavor and slightly candied-fruit sweetness. This beer is brewed for merrymaking. It’s a 100% barley malt lager with reddish tones from the generous addition of caramel malt. At 6.9% ABV, it’s a darker, higher strength beer perfect for colder weather, sure to warm you after a snowball fight or bring more happiness to a lively party. Supplement tasty brews with snacks from the bar and favorite Chicago food truck Bruges Brothers. In addition, Sausage König will be selling sausage baskets and currywurst in the barrelhouse loft.
Finish your holiday shopping with the perfect find from a local artisan vendor. The list of Holiday Market vendors includes:
