Begyle Brewing and Dovetail Brewery are teaming up to host the third annual Oktoberfestiversary. For two days, October 6 and 7, Begyle and Dovetail are celebrating the season, the neighborhood and, of course, beer—with a festival that is part Oktoberfest (with more than 30 locally brewer beers on tap) and part anniversary party (Begyle turns 6).
There will be special tappings from both breweries at 2 p.m. Saturday (Dovetail) and Sunday (Begyle), a giant selection of beer on tap all weekend long. Attendees can look forward to food from some of Chicago’s finest food trucks and pop-ups including Three Legged Tacos, Chicago Pizza Boss, DonerMen, Pierogi Rig, Bop Bar Truck, Cookout on Wheels, La Cocinita, Paulina Meat Market and Mac Dynamite.
In addition to outdoor seating and beer options, both taprooms will be open and serving beer to festival-goers.
