Naked City Tap House and Northwest Beer Guide celebrate summer with the return of summer with the return of Session Fest after a one year hiatus. Session Fest is Seattle’s only “light” beer festival. Session Fest 2014 kicks off Thursday June 26 with a brewers’  night and runs through the weekend.

Enjoying a beer session with friends.

Ses-sion, Pronunciation: \?se-sh?n\ Function: noun, a meeting devoted to a particular activity; “a filming session”; “a gossip session” Function: adjective, the name of a perceived style of beer usually associated with an ale or lager that is equal to or less than 5.00% Alcohol by Volume.

Session Fest is returning bigger and better in terms of more beers and tapping into that inherent brewer competitiveness but that conversation friendly low alcohol goal remains the same. “How low can you go?‘ in fermenting a beer with a great balanced flavors? You can answer that question at the 2014 session fest with the new Peoples’ Choice Best in Show and the best ISA (India Session Ale) awards.

Naked City logoSession Fest 2014 will feature over 25 beers from Washington, Oregon, California and Montana. Enjoy Session India Pale Ales, India Session Ales, Stouts, and even a Berliner Weisse in the Walrus Beer Garden at Naked City Tap House. In addition, a special selection of Session Fest beers will be on tap during the Greenwood Car Show and 5th Annual Beer Can Derby  in the Walrus beer garden at Naked City at  High Noon Saturday, June 28th.
