Celebrate the brew, not the buzz at Session Fest 2012. The second annual Session Brew Fest kicks off on July 27 and goes through July 29th.  From open to close, Naked City Tap House and Brewery will be hosting Session Fest with over 25 beers clocking in at 5% or under Alcohol By Volume (ABV).

Enjoying a beer session with friends.

Initiated by Paul Orchard of the Northwest Beer Guide, Session Fest is designed to take the focus off of the buzz and back to conversation, comrades and of course the flavors and aromas of the beer. Last year, Paul challenged Northwest brewers to draft lower alcohol beers  that could be enjoyed on summer days as well as an evening at the pub with friends. Unlike many traditional brew fests, Session Fest is held in a pub to encourage beer lovers to sit down with some beers and some friends. Drinkers are encouraged to hang out and enjoy the beer flavors without the de-sensitization of higher alcohol flavors.
