Session Fest 2011 Is Coming, July 14th – July 24th

For most the event of this mid-year is the Washington Brewers Festival, Seattle International Beer Festival, or maybe even the upcoming Cider Festival. And with any alcohol related festival preparation usually consists of hydration, food, and the possible onset of a hangover the next day.

Come this July rather than invest in a bottle of Gatorade and aspirin can we instead offer a detour? Starting July 14th in the Greenwood neighborhood the Naked City Taphouse & Brewery is proud to host Session Fest. Conceived and sponsored by 'blogger' Paul "Fruit Trees" Orchard of the Northwest Beer Guide, this one of a kind ten day event returns festival goers to beer's ancestral roots. What makes this festival unique is that each beer is 5.00% Alcohol By Volume or below.

Session Fest isn't just some run of the mill festival where the goer takes the risk of waking up worse for wear the next day. Instead Session Fest focuses on what makes going out fun, conversation shared over several hours of drinking. And what better way to celebrate the day spent than over a pint of Kolsch, Pale, or even an Indian Session Ale?

With a huge send off (Thursday July 14th) we invite you to choose from 12 different beers all 5.00% Alcohol by Volume or below.  Plus as each brewery contributed beer is depleted another local, Washington beer takes its place. In all this week long event will feature over 24 different Washington breweries. And who knows we might even sneak in a few kegs from across the Oregon / Idaho border.

Session Fact

“Session drinking is drinking in large quantities over a single period of time, or session, without the intention of getting heavily intoxicated. Unlike binge drinking, the focus is on the social aspects of the occasion. A session beer, such as a session bitter, is a beer that has a moderate or low alcohol content - in the UK this would be around 4% e.g. Carling, or a bitter which is generally weaker than lager abv, while in the USA session beers may go as high as 5%. “
