People love high ABV beers, but as someone who just spent 9 hours bar crawling last Saturday, I know sometimes you need a good session beer. Here are some of the best 5% and lower ABV options that craft beer has to offer. Mind you this isn’t an official ranking of the best session beers in the universe; it’s just 15 that I know and love. Be sure to let me know if you have a favorite that I should be trying.
