Dovetail Brewery 2018-07-13T19:21:11+00:00

The dovetail joint is the classic symbol of quality and craftsmanship that we strive to bring to our beer. As two brewers joining together to make a stronger form, we are open-hearted alchemists who savor life through a passion for brewing. We brew like monks (minus the vows) and believe that brewing is a fine balance of art and science, hard work and fun. We respect both traditional brewing methods and modern brewing creativity to create sublime beers that play on all of the senses and uplift our customers.

Although we hail from Chicago, we met in Munich at the Doemens Institute while studying for our Master Brewer Certifications. While bonding over the great beers and food of Bavaria, we soon discovered a mutual respect for the traditional brewing methods of continental Europe. As two educated brewers cut from similar stock, we decided to join our talents and shared vision into a stronger form, like a dovetail joint.

Our goal is to produce beer of the highest quality similar to the level of craftsmanship found in fine woodworking. We are merging continental European styles and techniques with American creativity to produce the kind of beers found in small, family-run breweries in Europe.

We have over 5000 sq ft of event space and can serve our beer, sell wine and spirits, and arrange food! We also have a projector, lighting, and sound system with microphone.

Event Promotion: We are offering beer samples.
