Drakes Brewing is sponsoring the first, of what will become an Annual Session Beer Festival to salute Session Beer Month across the country.
Session brews are craft style beers under 5% ABV, which makes them easier to consume with little after effect.
The Beer Advocate defines a session beer as the following;
Any beer that contains no higher than 5 percent ABV, featuring a balance between malt and hop characters (ingredients) and, typically, a clean finish - a combination of which creates a beer with high drinkability. The purpose of a session beer is to allow a beer drinker to have multiple beers, within a reasonable time period or session, without overwhelming the senses or reaching inappropriate levels of intoxication. (Yes, you can drink and enjoy beer without getting drunk.)
Drakes will highlight the event with its own beers and a selection group of others including;
Anderson Valley Brewing
Eagle Rock Brewing
Golden Road Brewing
Iron Springs Brewing
Maverick's Brews (Half Moon Bay Brewing)
Mill Valley Beerworks
Sierra Nevada Brewing
Stone Brewing Co.
Triple Rock Brewing
(and more to come)
