Session Fest Kicks Off Tonight at Naked City Taphouse Featuring 25 Breweries

June 26th, 2014 · 1 Comment · Events

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.

More info from NW Beer Guide:

Returning after a one year hiatus, Seattle’s only ‘light beer’ festival, features over 25 breweries from the Northwestern region and California. This year stands to be our best yet, featuring numerous Session India Pale Ales, India Session Ales, Stouts, and even Berliner Weisse in the Walrus beer garden at Naked City (8564 Greenwood Avenue North Seattle, WA 98103). Breaking it down by state, we’ll have 18 participating breweries from Washington, 6 from Oregon, plus 1 each from Montana and California.
New to this year’s Session Fest is the introduction of the “Best in Show” and “ISA: Interesting Session Ale” awards, for people’s favorite and the best India Session Ale.
Kicking off on June 26th, at 6pm, with a Brewers Night and an outdoor bar, you’re invited to stop by and grab a pint (or two) while enjoyingSession Fest!

    If you want to try this years Washington Beer Awards gold medal winning session ale you will have to travel to Triplehorn Brewing in Woodinville, sadly we weren’t invited.
