As the temperature rises, so does the chance for day-long drinking. The only problem is that if you’re drinking beer that’s too high in alcohol, you might find yourself passing out midday.
Thus, the invention of a Session Beer! A “Session Beer” isn’t really a style of beer. “Session” is basically used to describe a beer that is no higher than 5% ABV – so you can kick back multiple session beers in one sitting.
Session beers are perfect for parties, pre and post hockey games, and long weeknights out. Here are our five favorites Session Beers, not in any particular order.
