1st Annual NorCal Session Fest
Beer lovers, we are in the midst of a revolution. We have thrown off the fetters of the fizzy yellows and clamored for change. To supplant the sameness, we sought and found the EXTREME. Yet, in our noble quest for more innovation and more experimentation we have often flown past many classic, well-loved, craft beer styles.

We have left behind these beers of import; beers perfectly suited to a long conversation at the pub, a picnic at the park, a post-hike refreshment, or a mid-summer beach trip, and beers under 5% ABV that one can happily imbibe over the course of a few hours and leave satisfied and still standing.

We call to you beer lovers. Do not disregard a well-made, flavorful Bitter, Mild, Dry Stout, Pale Ale, or other session beer because you perceive a lower alcohol content as a sign of the weak and bland. Allow us to prove that these beers are worthy of consideration. They, just like the extreme beers, have their place in our fridges and on our local taps.

We declare the month of May for Session beers. Beers that need not be analyzed, dissected, sipped, or sniffed in abundance. Delicious beers that not only enhance a good conversation but can extend it through multiple rounds.

May is officially Session Beer Month, and to celebrate we are putting on a fest unlike any other in Northern California. You're invited to join us on Saturday, May 25, 2013 for the 1st Annual NorCal Session Fest hosted at Drake's Brewing in San Leandro, CA and benefiting the East Bay Bike Coalition.
