Special Beer Releases:

  • Dovetail: Maibock: (7.6% ABV) Meant to be celebrated and enjoyed at Mayfestiversary, this beer was brewed in January and then hibernated for 4 1/2 months. Now, it’s time to celebrate and savor this honey-toned beer: pale, light and exuberant.
  • Begyle: Boat Shoes: (5% ABV) A Kölsch style with a moderate amount of bitterness and a crisp dry finish, this light, malt-forward Kölsch is made for leisure.
  • Begyle: Sunny Afternoon: (5.4 % ABV) An American Pale Ale brewed with a touch of wheat and oats and features the Citra hop. Strong aromatics of tropical fruits, lemon, and grass give want to a juicy, smooth beer with a dry finish. Perfect to sip on a sunny afternoon.

Kids’ Corner:
12-3 p.m.: Wiggleworms Instrument Petting Zoo from Old Town School of Folk Music Try out a new instrument, win prizes, and hear about upcoming classes & concerts!
