Dovetail Brewery Hosts Fruhschoppen in its Taproom September 25

Acclaimed Chicago brewery brings a traditional German social custom where friends gather for a Sunday morning beer to their taproom
    CHICAGO, IL, September 22, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Dovetail Brewery, a Chicago-based brewer of authentic continental European style beers using traditional brewing methods, is bringing a German Sunday morning beer drinking tradition to Chicago, at a special event in their taproom, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, September 25. Dovetail is located at 1800 W. Belle Plaine at North Ravenswood Avenue in Chicago's North Center neighborhood.

This German custom, known as Fruhschoppen, is a weekly gathering of friends who come together at a pub or tavern Sunday to enjoy a late morning beer. On September 25, Dovetail Brewery will be joined by Sausage Konig to serve Blaue Zipfel, a traditional Franconian dish of Nurnberger sausages and onions.

Chicago's beer lovers can purchase 1/3 liters ($5) or 1/2 liters ($7) of Dovetail's four signature beers on tap, Lager, Hefeweizen, Rauchweizen, and Grodziskie. Dovetail's taproom is a lively, dog-friendly gathering place that has become a popular spot for neighborhood locals as well as Chicago's beer aficionados.

"My co-founder, Bill Wesselink, and I met when we were both students at the Doemens Akademie in Munich," said Hagen Dost, co-founder of Dovetail Brewery. "There is nothing like getting together on a Sunday morning to have a beer with sausage and great conversation, especially if it's a smoked beer like our Rauchweizen."

Currently there are no plans to host Fruhschoppen every week, but if popular demand dictates, it may become a permanent fixture at this fast-growing, critically-praised brewery.
