In under two years since its 2016 taproom opening, Dovetail has gained significant national recognition for quality German and Belgian inspired beer. Co-owners and head brewers Hagen Dost and Bill Wesselink, who met in Munich at the Doemens Institute while studying for their Master Brewer Certifications, were recently recognized by Beer Advocate magazine for their innovation in brewing. Dovetail was voted into the Top 5 of 861 breweries in USA Today’s 10Best 2017 Reader’s Choice Awards, and the brewery also made it to the Sweet 16 round in The Hop Review’s March Madness-styled contest to find Chicago’s favorite brewery.
