Brewer’s Blog, Brewmaster’s Shadow Gail Brooks 07212015: Another new brew enters the fermentation tank. It’s a Session IPA!! This is great news for IPA lovers looking for an all day beer. A “session beer” is a beer low in alcohol which can be consumed in large quantities without making someone excessively intoxicated. This usually means beers in the range of 3-5% alcohol by volume. Like most things in the world of beer, this isn’t a term that’s strictly defined, but most people familiar with it will give you a similar definition. As exciting and interesting as crazy, high gravity IPA beers can be, sometimes it’s tough to drink more than one or two of them. This can be frustrating when you’re in the mood to enjoy a number of beers over a few hours but still want to maintain some measure of sobriety, say if you were grilling in the backyard. Situations like that are exactly what session beers are designed for. Look for this sessionable IPA in the Taproom soon.
