Beer In The Park - Baaad Boy Black Wheat
Beer in the Park is a weekly series that showcases some of our favorite craft beers, past, present, and future. Most, if not all, of the beers covered will be available at the Naperville Ale Fest.
Whether you’re a craft beer aficionado or a newcomer, the Naperville Ale Fest has something for everyone. Located at the Naper Settlement, with downtown Naperville as a backdrop, it is the ideal setting to experience craft beer.
Brewery: 3 Sheeps Brewing Company
Beer: Baaad Boy Black Wheat
Style: American Dark Wheat Ale
Baaad Boy Black Wheat is here to remind us all that beer doesn’t have to fit into a specific niche to impress. The beer features dark colors and strong coffee aromas that are typical of stouts but Baaad Boy is a rebel in a bottle. It’s a wheat beer -- but it’s far from typical, with its rich, dark exterior and cascading head, and an initial profile gives way to hints of leather and caramel but comes full circle and ends on a sour wheat note. This beer pushes the boundaries of what a black wheat beer is, as there is no head retention, hop profile, or cloudiness here, and shows you how good Baaad can be.
The fourth annual Naperville Ale Fest will take place on Saturday, July 16, 2016 and will showcase over 200 unique beers from craft breweries around the country. The fest will also feature live music and food from some of the area’s favorite restaurants and food trucks. Situated on the grounds of the Naper Settlement, with downtown Naperville as a backdrop, it is the ideal setting to experience craft beer. A portion of the proceeds from the Naperville Ale Fest will benefit the Naper Settlement and the Naperville Heritage Society.
