Beer In The Park - Rebel IPA
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: Samuel Adams
Beer: Rebel IPA
Style: American IPA
Boston Beer swings for the fences and hits it out of the park, with their claim that Samuel Adams Rebel IPA “gets it just right”. With a golden color and a light, refreshing body, this IPA is a perfect companion to a warm Sunday afternoon. Brewed with five hop varieties, including cascade, simcoe, centennial, chinook and amarillo, this West coast-style IPA is bursting with a hop-forward bite.
As the small white head on this Samuel Adams IPA hits the lips, the fruity pine aroma overtakes the senses. What makes Rebel IPA stand out from all the others is that the hops remain prominent and strong throughout, along with a crisp mouthfeel and a fresh finish until you decide to call it in for the day. Not your average day, however as this beer is for those who are comfortable being the outsider, the rebel.
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.
