Beer in the Park - Storm Cat
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: One Trick Pony
Beer: Storm Cat
Style: American Amber Ale
One Trick Pony is a small microbrewery located in Lansing, Illinois that proudly makes beer for people who want to appreciate it the same way they do. Their American Amber Ale, Storm Cat, is ripe with grapefruit and hints of tangerine, giving it an even and subtle sweetness. Light bodied and smooth, Storm Cat is brewed with Mosaic hops and caramel malts that balance each other nicely, making it an easy drinker.
Storm Cat pours a clean amber color with an off-white head and offers upfront pine aromas. Citrus fruit hits your lips on first sip while maintaining a sweet, breaded caramel flavor throughout. This beer shouldn’t be taken lightly despite it’s easy drinking. With a name like Storm Cat and an ABV of 6.7%, don’t be surprised when this one sneaks up on you.
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.
