I’m of the opinion that we can’t have enough options for flavorful beers that weigh in at 5% ABV or less. Lucky for me, I’m not the only one. The Northwest Beer Guide has teamed up with Naked City Brewery and Taphouse for Session Fest, which kicks off tonight at 6pm. The event will feature beers from 25 breweries, all of which will be 5% ABV or less. There will of course be many hoppy session IPAs and pale ales, but also look for English-style bitter, Berliner Weisse, German-style lagers and more.
The fun kicks off tonight at Naked City at 6pm with a Brewers Night. Feel free to have a couple pints.
