We love beer. That's why we're devoting an entire year to discovering (and drinking) cold ones from near and far. Know of a beer worth shouting out? Send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
So-called “session” beers are all the rage these days, and for good reason: they offer a flavorful alternative to mass market lagers while still boasting only modest alcohol levels. That’s good news for those who like to spend long spring afternoons soaking up sun, conversation, and drinks. Beers like Victory Swing Session are there to help you do it. You’d never know this herbal, spicy brew has the same barely-there alcohol content of mass market swill. Both the taste and aroma suggest grassy fields, fresh spring hay, zesty lemons, and spiced bread. Lots of grapefruit and other citrus in the aroma, while the tangy, crisp finish boasts touches of grass and fruit, with a faint hint of tartness at the end. Yet more proof that Pennsylvania is a great brewing state, this is a beer built for spring! Try it at City Tap House, The Gaslight, Watkins Drinkery and other locations.
