These guys know how to socially distance. Safest place to enjoy a patio pint! Helles is ?

During this lovely pandemic within a warm weekend...well...a treat is in order. Dovetail has a great beer garden. As you enter you have your temp checked and are given some mask instructions (the basics...wear your mask when not at the table... don't be a jerk...the standard). From there the beer flows. The selection is great and pairs well with the cheese ate and charcuterie. There are seatings so be prepared to only have a limited time...a limited but wonderful time!

Wonderful brewery, delicious continental styles, as good as anything I've had in Europe. Safe COVID-19 policies and beer to go!

Dovetail is fantastic: they make great "continental" style beers (gueuze, lambic, hefeweizen, doppels, rauchbier, kolsch, lager, etc etc etc) and have figured out this crazy coronapocalypse ordering business. You order from their website and then walk up to where they've put together a stand right inside the front door. They keep your beer chilled, and it's a super easy transaction. They also spent time this spring helping to raise money for the Friendship Center. They're good neighbors and just plain decent humans, AND they make great beer!

More than a brewery, Dovetail is a community hub to get to know your neighbors. Great hang space, excellent beers.

just picked up dovetail to-go today, the Hefeweizen and Rauchbier was great, and I loved the Grodziskie, so light in alcohol volume but what a full wonderful full taste, can't wait to come back, stay safe and take care

Dovetail is the real deal!!! My wife and I have been going there for a few years now, and we always look forward to going again the next time. We are happy to see them doing as well as they are -- they absolutely deserve it! First and foremost, their beer is excellent! They brew primarily German styles, and they do it incredibly well. I particularly like their main Lager, their Dunkel, and their Altbier. Their Rauchbier is a nice, smoky treat, though perhaps not as sessional as their other beers. Their Kriek is also a gem -- spontaneously fermented with Balaton cherries for a delicious, tart, funky flavor. I have never had a disappointing beer from Dovetail. What's more, the atmosphere in their taproom is great. We like to go on weeknights and either bring food or order deliver to there, because it tends to have a relatively quiet, chill vibe then. It's the same if you go early in the day on weekends -- we've actually held birthday parties with small groups that way, without reservations, and it's worked out great. On "party nights" the taproom can get quite crowded and loud, so I would just take that into account. The staff is also very friendly and helpful. The bartenders are very responsive, even when it's crazy in there. The owners are also very friendly and go to a lot of community- and beer-centric events, which I think is great. I had a really nice conversation with master brewer Bill at the Hopleaf a while back, when he was there for a release party, which made my evening! So there you have it: good beer, good atmosphere, good people. This is a brewery and venue that I am proud to patronize and frequent. Cheers!

Radically drinkable beers. Heavy skew toward Germany styles. Some of their special beers are weird, in a very good way. X02 is definitely on the list of best wilds.

Great beer, pure and simple. Made the way beer should be made. Quality without the weirdness

I contacted Dovetail asking if they would be able to accommodate 36 people at the same time for about an hour if we stopped by during a private brewery crawl and they responded right away welcoming us. Although it was a Saturday evening and it was pretty crowded, they did a great job serving everyone in our party and we had fun during our short visit. Everyone in the group enjoyed the beer and in particular the IPAs were a favorite.

Great beer and cool tap room. Drank 2 very fresh tasting beers. It was busy but they had enough bartenders to keep things moving. Hopefully, see you at the CBS Umpteenth Annual Picnic 2020.

Wow, first time here. Started with Russell giving me a really great introduction to the place; followed by checking out some nice artwork; really digging the design; russell talking about the use of reclaimed wood in various places, which I found superbly pleasing aesthetically (and environmentally, as I’m an eco geek); upstairs to the beer hall...ok more later. Fingers cold, late for another date.
