May is Session Beer Month

05-20-2013

Session Ales



 

“We humbly declare the month of May to be dedicated to Session Beers. May the tyranny of the Imperialists be cast down. Raise your pints, and declare with pride, less is more.”

– Session Beer Month Facebook

 

 

Since May is Session Beer month it’s time to explore this beer category a bit more in depth.

 

A session beer pretty much means the beer packs a bunch of flavor at a low ABV, meaning you can sit down and have more than a couple of these brews in one session.  Technically, it must have low gravity and be at or under 4.5% ABV or 5% ABV, depending on your source.

 

Try and tempt your palette with these paragons of session beers.

 

Perrin Brewing Razzberry Blonde

4.5% ABV 7 IBU

 

Crisp with a slightly sweet fruit flavor full of raspberries.

 

Summit Brewing Co. Pilsener

4.5% ABV  25 IBU
