2017 Ballpark Ale Fest Beer List


The 2017 edition of Ballpark Ale Fest Rockford will feature over 80 unique American craft beers from all over the country. This year’s fest will also feature Cider Alley, Lager Lane and the House Of Funk. Check out the full list below!!

House Of Funk:
The House of Funk celebrates all things wild aged, all things sours — all things funky. It’s a phrase that non-craft beer drinker might find, well — off-putting. But those in the know know that there’s just something special about wild yeast and funky flavors.

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.
