pick up in local shops. I wanted to also offer a few suggestions (probably not a comprehensive list) of places to go and beers to drink on this day. Session beer for me is about drinking with friends and talking, brainstorming, and arguing. Bring a friend with you wherever you end up. These beers are 4.5% and below, while I'd prefer to only list beers below 4%, that would leave us with only one beer. Check it out:
Word is BR has a keg of Yak and Yeti's AminAle Mild, a beer that I tried recently and thought was delicious. Expect nutty and caramel malt flavors with some bitterness. Check it: 3.7%. I heard they're tapping it Friday so not sure how long it will last!
Bristol is putting together a Speakeasy to celebrate the repeal of Prohibition. You have to wear a speakeasy-type costume and know the password "Volstead." Once inside you'll be able to enjoy 33cent Yellow Kite Pilsners, which sits at 4.2% ABV. There will also be some music, a bathtub full of brewing beer, and poker tables. Sounds like a good way to celebrate the day! Starts at 6pm.
Additionally, any Bristol Beehive you can find around town will be good. It sits at 4.06%
