Tickets Now On Sale - The Naperville Ale Fest will feature of 180 beers from craft breweries around the country.
Nice...of course something in the burbs when I'll be the city that day..
The Naperville Ale Fest will be pouring 6 different Solemn Oath beers at the 2013 Naperville Ale Fest - Snaggletooth Bandana, Wreckagemaster, Mr. Inappropriate, Grumpess, Mythological Wonder, and Scareball
And here I thought you guys would just bring some more common craft beer. If all the brewers are bringing their A game + some rare stuff, I might just have to go.
Any idea on what others are bringing?
Love me some Scareball. This is going to be fun.
Everyone can use this as the training festival for the real one three weeks later in Madison - sorry, I had to do it!
The final beer list is complete and the 2013 Naperville Ale Fest will feature 203 unique American Craft Beers from 88 different breweries.
Where is the list of beers?
Blurgh! Wish I would've heard about this sooner - nonetheless, just bought my non-VIP tix.
The Brewery & Beer List can be viewed at the attached link.
2013 Naperville Ale Fest Brewery & Beer List
not to be a big stouty pants but how does VIP figure into this?
Yeah thanks. I saw the post on Facebook with the list of beers. Guess I was expecting more from the previous discussions about some having cool and limited stuff. Was hoping to to see some cool stuff from Founders, bells and FFF. Guess just regular stuff I can get at Binny's like most of the breweries coming. At least GI is bringing BCBS and SP. oh well.
Not sure i understand ur comment.
There are ten beers that will be released in the VIP area that are not on released list.
Color me shocked that FFF's beers remain a mystery. Telling people what to expect is most certainly not metal.
There are over 180 beers at the fest. Not all of them can be rare and limited beers. There is limited stuff being poured from Solemn Oath, Two Brothers, Pipe Works, Goose Island, Urban Legend, Lakefront, Metropolitan, Revolution,Rogue, and Sam Adams. And we haven't released what is being poured from FFF's.
Yes, understood. Was really looking forward to Bells and Founders. Looking forward to see what FFF will bring.
We are pouring some Bell's Round House in the VIP tent and I am still trying to get something special from Founders to pour in the general admission area. I will keep you updated about Founders.
The Naperville Ale Fest will be pouring 10 beers exclusively in the VIP Area. Introducing the Good Beer Hunting Rare & Hard To Find Beer List. Naperville Ale Fest

Sorry just to clarify - there will not be any BCBCS available outside of the VIP area?
Would love to go, but I'll be hosting my buddy from Boston all weekend. We're going to Pearl Jam at Wrigley the day before this, then plan on golfing Saturday. Don't think I could convince my GF to be a DD for the festival, either. Lineup and beer list looks awesome!
My dad brother and myself will be there as long as Shannon doesn't burst before the 20th.
There will be some Bourbon County Brand Stout in the general admission area but the Bourbon County Brand Coffee Stout will only be in the VIP area.
Sounds like a good time. My dad took one sip of Zombie Dust, now refuses to try any more craft beers. Ha, so he wouldn't go with me.
Smart man... to like ZD that much that is.
Except that he hated it. Always refers to what I'm drinking as "One of your gross beers."
