Gunilla Asher, who created this column, loved a good party. So when I stumble across one, I know it’s time to divert from writing about what’s in a libation to writing about the festiveness of enjoying a libation. In this case, it’s beer. Session beer, to be exact. What’s a “session beer,” you ask? The organizers of the second annual Sesh Fest offer up this: “There isn’t an official definition of a ‘session’ beer, but we all have a general grasp of the idea: refreshing, low alcohol beer full of flavor and fun to drink. Since the dawn of time when the first kettle was bestowed upon Adam and Eve, light and refreshing beers have been part of life. We like to categorize these beers as under 5 percent ABV, balanced, and refreshing.” And, at Sesh Fest, nearly four dozen breweries will bring their session beers to Sculpture Park in Denver for a sampling. Road trip, anyone?
