Naperville Biggest Beer Party is Back!


The sixth annual Naperville Ale Fest will take place on Saturday, July 14th at the Naper Settlement in Downtown Naperville. The fest is one of the largest in the area with more than 200 craft beers, live music and food trucks. Taking place on the 12 acres of the Naper Settlement, with downtown Naperville as a backdrop, it’s the ideal setting to experience craft beer.

In addition to the massive craft beer selection, the festival will feature a number of specialty experiences, including cider alley, Christmas in July ten, House of Funk, Lager Lane, West vs. East Coast IPAs, and a craft spirits tent with a number of locally produced punches.

200+ Craft Beers

Expect a lot of craft beer. We’ve pulled together over 200 of the best beers this country has to offer, and brought them all to one of the most striking venues we could find.


The House Of Funk

The "House of Funk"  features regional breweries producing some seriously funky and unique takes on the sour style. Tart, complex and totally unique, these are beers worth dissecting


Christmas In July

We love Christmas beers. And even though some people think it’s weird, we love drinking them in the summer. That’s why we’ve been saving a bunch of speciality Christmas beer kegs in storage for just this moment.

Cider Alley

Cider Alley is a special place at our festival for those with a taste for something outside of the beer lane. It’s a tasty side trip from the malts, yeasts and hops into the world of ciders. We’ll be featuring craft ciders from Chicago and beyond, all perfect summer sipping.

Lager Lane

The growing trend of craft lagers is one that we at Chicago Ale Fest and Lou Dog Events are really excited about. These aren’t your watered down, fizzy yellow “domestic beers.” They’re full-flavored and complex, sometimes with a touch of hops, but always easy-drinking.


Mini Food Truck Fest

There are few things we love more than food trucks. That’s why we’re packing Naperville Ale Fest with a mini food truck fest, and bringing 10 of our favorite trucks in the gates. Besides the 200+ craft beer options, you’ll have tons of tasty food options to pair.


Tickets are on sale now! Don’t delay, we promise you don’t want to miss out on the best summer beer fest around.
