Not a festival, not quite a market but absolutely a great time. Dovetail Brewery, 1800 W. Belle Plaine, will be hosting some of the tastiest artisanal local craft vendors in its taproom from noon to 5 p.m. on March 25. Stop by and create your own charcuterie board of assorted breads, cheeses and meats to accompany your favorite Dovetail beers. And by popular demand, Dovetail has added a 1 pm. tour on Saturdays. Stop by the brewery at either 11 a.m. or 1 p.m. to enjoy an informative and fun tour. Tour admission is $15 which includes your choice of three Dovetail 0.3L servings of beer.

Ēma, 74 W. Illinois, another LEYE restaurant, is having its first-ever wine dinner on March 29 at 6:30. For $75 a person (plus tax and gratuity) you’ll be treated to a mezze feast of Ema favorites and specialty dishes crafted by Chef CJ Jacobson and accompanied by wines from Sandhi Winery in Santa Barbara, California. Leading the event is winemaker and James Beard beverage book winner Rajat Parr, author Secrets of the Sommelier, and recipient of the 2015 James Beard Award for Outstanding Wine Professional.  Call 312-485-5778 or email emaparties@leye.com to reserve.

Beer for breakfast? Why not!? Dovetail Brewery, 1800 W. Belle Plaine, is hosting a traditional German Sunday morning beer drinking event, Frühschoppen, in its taproom from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, October 23. Hey, if they can do it in Germany and New Orleans…

This German custom is a weekly gathering of friends who come together at a pub or tavern Sunday to enjoy a late morning beer. On October 23 join Dovetail Brewery and Sausage König to imbibe and eat. König’s handmade sausages are seasoned with lots of herbs, spices, and some salt are simple but amazingly flavorful. The featured sausages for October 23 are Blaue Zipfel, a traditional Franconian dish of Nürnberger sausages and onions and Currywurst, a curry seasoned pork sausage in a tangy currywurst sauce.

Chicago’s beer lovers can purchase .3 liters ($5) or .5 liters ($7) of Dovetail’s signature beers on tap: Lager, Dunkelweizen (a winter version of Hefeweizen that is darker in color, with chocolate tones in addition to Hefeweizen’s clove and banana), Rauchweizen (a dark, smoky Hefeweizen), and Grodziskie, a classic Polish Beer. 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 aSunday morning to have a beer with sausage and great conversation, especially if it’s a smoked beer like our Rauchweizen. This event will be a celebration of our beer and delicious food that pairs well with them. We think our many fans will have a great time.”
