The Fusion of Hops and Heads

Craft Beer Industry and Craft Brewery News

Finding a Happy Medium with Session Beers

When craft beer really began to take off in the 90s, the focus (beyond the obvious upgrades in flavor, texture, and variety) was the noticeable boost in alcohol content. Nowadays, craft beer is reaching herculean heights when it comes to strength, making the notion of a Session, or lower alcohol beer, especially attractive to those who love craft beer. Because sometimes some of us still have to look and act like responsible members of society.

LA’s Far Bar Serves Food From Afar, But Beer From a-Near

“Hey dad, can we get Chinese for dinner tonight?” “Well son, your mother wants Italian, while sissy wants a burger, and I would like to go to a Japanese restaurant that also serves delicious craft beer. But we also can’t forget about Uncle Joe – he only wants to eat at bars that serve bourbon, so we can flush all my desires down the toilet.”“Ah dad, I’m tired of going to the Horseshoe Café and Bar! Why is Uncle Joe still staying with us anyway? It’s been three months already.” “Well Ricky, Uncle Joe couldn’t find a place to stay after he was released from his halfway house, so we’re going to the Shoe again. And there’s going to be no more griping from you young man or we’re not going to get FroYo after dinner.” “Ah daaad.”
