ORIGINAL BEER: SESSION LAGER Tuesday, June 12, 2012
Session beers are so named because they’re the kind of beers (emphasis on the session’s plurality) that you can drink during long conversational sessions without getting completely legless. In other words, because of their relatively low ABV percentages, session beers are the go-to beers you can enjoy, because they can help preserve the focus you need when you’re plotting schemes or planning heists.
It makes sense, then, that, to celebrate its first 20 years in craft brewing, the folks at Full Sail Brewing in nearby Mt. Hood decided to dub their pre-Prohibition-era lager as, simply, Session, which they introduced with much acclaim to the public in 2007.
Made to suit all tastes, from a novice to an aficionado, the Session lager (or two) is a beer for everyone at all times, whether you’ve just finished mowing the lawn or whether you’re playing hooky from work and meeting up with friends for an early Friday afternoon Happy Hour.
You know it by its red label, its stubby bottle and its crisp, clean and refreshing taste.
Try a bottle or two with a basket of fries or as chaser paired with a nice, neat glass of whiskey.
