Session Ale

Big and bold flavour with lower alcohol content, session ale is your new favourite beer.

WHY WE LOVE IT

A darling of the craft beer scene, session ales deliver big, bold flavour and depth with a lower alcohol profile than your typical IPA. “You’re getting that great hoppy taste of a good craft IPA, but brewers are bringing it down in alcohol so you can enjoy a beer and still be socially responsible,” says Brittney Pronk, LCBO beer ambassador in Waterloo. Session ales came to be back in WWI England when workers got two four-hour drinking periods or “sessions” per day calling for a lighter brew than the usual stout or porter.

 

YOU MAY TASTE

Fresh, fruity, floral and pleasingly bitter — the trademarks of hop-forward IPAs — with just the right dose of malt flavour.
