    CHICAGO, IL, August 03, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Root, Root Root for the Cubbies with Dovetail Brewery's Summer Helles

Baseball season is in full swing and what better way to cheer on the defending World Champions than with a perfect summer brew. A Munich style helles, the Summer Helles is the little brother to Dovetail's Lager, with a lighter body and alcohol content, making it a beer you can reach for over and over this summer.

The beer will only be available at Dovetail's taproom and at Lucky Dorr, the new restaurant and beer garden part of the Park at Wrigley Field plaza.

Dovetail Brewery Crosses State Lines for the First Time with Limited Regional Distribution
Since opening in June of 2016 Dovetail established themselves as one of the country's best craft breweries. Naturally, the brewery receives distribution requests from across the country but in the interest of preserving the high quality and consistency of their beer, has only distributed locally until now. Thanks to a partnership with Artisanal Imports--a highly-respected importer of the most highly acclaimed, internationally award-winning beverages from around the world, and Craft Roads Beverage, the brewery is taking its first steps out of Illinois and into Indiana. Indianapolis residents will be able to enjoy Dovetail beers at select locations.
