Brewery: Ten Ninety BrewingBeer: Jaggery TripelStyle: Tripel 


When one thinks of a Tripel they tend to think of high alcohol, a sweet finish balanced out by a heavy malt back bone which includes hints of Belgian yeast throughout. Ten Ninety’s Jaggery Tripel lives up to this standard but introduces a new twist. Traditional Tripels use candi sugar as a sweetener, for this particular beer Ten Ninety decided to use palm sugar which adds a depth to the sweet flavor of this beer that one could almost consider savory. This beer is a must try at the 2016 Chicago Ale Fest.

The Chicago Ale Fest is a celebration of American Craft Beer in the heart of Chicago. The 2016 fest will take place on Friday, June 17th and Saturday, June 18th. Located at Buckingham Fountain in historic Grant Park, bordered by the Chicago skyline and Lake Michigan, the fest will feature more than 200 beers from over 100 American craft breweries. The fest will also feature live music and food from some of Chicago’s favorite restaurants. Join us on Chicago’s front lawn for one of the most anticipated craft beer fest of the year!
