Dovetail Brewery and Begyle Brewing are together again for their 6th(-ish, after a couple of virtual years) annual Mayfestiversary located between the breweries at 1800 W Cuyler Ave, Chicago, IL.
On Memorial Day weekend from 12:00 p.m.- 10:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 28 and 12:00 p.m.-.9:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 29, they invite Chicago to enjoy beer, food, music, and friends and neighbors of all ages coming together to once again show support for The Friendship Center, our neighborhood food pantry that’s been serving the Northwest side since 1969.
The festival is free to attend with a $5 suggested donation to benefit The Friendship Center, a non-profit organization that provides hope and dignity in the community through access to food, clothing, and critical social services, which have seen an increase in need throughout the ongoing pandemic.
The fest will include special beer tappings, as well as standby favorites, from both breweries throughout the weekend.
Dovetail will tap its annual Maibock, a strong, golden lager made for Mayfestiversary, and will pour spring-friendly beers including Helles, Hefeweizen, Kölsch, Vienna Lager and more. (Detailed beer list below.)
Begyle will be tapping a brand new, previously unreleased, Barrel-Aged Stout and feature several Barrel-Aged Imperial Pajamas and Barrel-Aged Snooze Button variants. Warm-weather favorites and taproom staples will also be available throughout the weekend, including; Begyle Blonde Ale, Boat Shoes, Sunny Afternoon, Free Bird, Hophazardly, and No Tomorrow.
