KOVAL Distillery

Visit the KOVAL tent in the Begyle Beer Garden at Ravenswood and Berteau for tastings of some of their organic, made-in-Ravenswood whiskies, liqueurs and gins, then walk a block north to 4241 N Ravenswood and get a peek inside their production distillery and pick up some swag, including tour passes, branded flasks and liqueur scented candles!


Dovetail Brewery

RAW VENUE #27 – Visit Dovetail Brewery’s taproom for a pint, see work from painter Emily Rapport, then head upstairs to their second floor loft space for a RAW Pop-Up Market! Over twenty local artists will be showing their work over the weekend.


RAW Street Fest

RAW VENUE #5 – At the center of the ArtWalk is the RAW Street Fest, which features over 50 exhibitors, two stages of live music, the return of Begyle Brewing’s popular craft beer garden, a children’s activity corner and our food truck roundup. Grab coffee and pastries from Julius Meinl and see artwork from members of Thresholds in the pop-up gallery (Venue 4). The RAW Street Fest is a great rest and meet-up point where attendees can grab a bite and a drink while enjoying live entertainment. A $5 donation is requested upon entry, a small offering that goes a long way in keeping the rest of the festival free and un-ticketed. We want to extend our sincere thanks to those of you who help us make RAW a continued success through your generosity.


Begyle Brewing Company
