Session Beers at The Diamond

One of our favorite beer trends has been the recent appreciation for session beers (low alcohol beers that you can keep drinking over the course of a drinking session) among brewers and drinkers. This Sunday, April 7, The Diamond in Greenpoint, Brooklyn will host a Session Beer Day starting at 2 p.m. They have promised a line up of nine beers that fall between 2.5-4.5% ABV and some “cheap” beef carbonnade.

American brewers have started brewing more of these types of beer – like Carton Boat Beer – but we hope to see some classic English examples of session beers like Black Cat from Moorhouse. The event comes on the seventieth anniversary of the Cullen-Harrison act, which amended the Volstead act to allow for beer up to 4 percent ABV.
