I’ve always enjoyed lower alcohol beers. Due in no small part to the fact that I can drink more and still be functional, for me, the goal is never to get hammered. After what seems like an eternity of ABV one-upmanship, brewers are also starting to offer fantastically well crafted beers on the lower end of the alcohol scale. Maybe for people who don’t want to have to call a cab after just one pint, maybe as a way to focus on more delicate flavors that might be overwhelmed by the alcohol or maybe because some of us want to try several beer while avoiding becoming a cautionary tale.
As summer creeps up on us, and worries of beer-snobbery-judgement over the selection in our Beer Party Tub offerings start to invade our weekends, here are some craft beers that can keep you up to your witty ways while still enjoying a few pints:
Stone Brewing Co.: Levitation 4.4% ABV
Founders Brewing: All Day IPA 4.7% ABV
Drakes Brewing Co.: Alpha Session 3.8% ABV
Dogfish Head: Festina Peche 4.5% ABV
Eagle Rock Brewing: Solidarity 3.8% ABV
