Naperville Ale Fest is the annual winter and summer outdoor beer-tasting festival held in Naperville, Illinois. The festival takes place at Frontier Park in winter and at Naper Settlement in summer. The event provides an excellent opportunity to enjoy the best local brews, a variety of food trucks, and live music, but also the outdoors and walking trails, a skate park, and picnicking.

Naperville Ale Fest features more than 150 American craft beers. Some of them are only available in the winter. Unlike summer beer fests. Naperville Ale Fest gives its attendees a rare chance to try many stronger brews: stouts, porters, and barrel-aged beers. There are plenty of winter warmers, and giant double IPAs to try. The festival features delicious food from some of Chicagoland’s best food trucks. Set near the historic Naper Settlement, close to downtown Naperville, this festival is a perfect idea for a weekend trip from Chicago. Naperville is an ideal wintertime setting to experience craft beer.

The VIP tickets are available for those who are looking for a premium experience. It guarantees early entry and a limited edition bottle of the Naperville Ale Fest / Solemn Oath collaboration beer. VIPs also get a food voucher and access to the VIP lounge with specialty beers.
