Session Beer Day April 7th

One of brother beer blogger Lew Bryson's other pet projects, the Session Beer Project, has "selected" April 7th as Session Beer Day. 

What is this all about? 

The Session Beer Project is a non-profit, unorganized, unofficial effort to popularize and support the brewing and enjoyment of session beers. You can read more about it here and here.

For our purposes, 'session beer' is defined as a beer that is:

► 4.5% alcohol by volume or less
► flavorful enough to be interesting
► balanced enough for multiple pints
► conducive to conversation
► reasonably priced

If that seems vague...it is. Here's another definition: low-alcohol, but not low-taste. It's subjective. Live with it, and enjoy it. We're here to help make your night out more fun, more tasty, and more safe. Cheers!
One Baltimore brewpub, which has always been somewhat "session-beer-friendly" in spite of the "bigger, stronger, hoppier" mantra seemingly chanted by a large proportion of American craft-beer enthusiasts, is marking the day appropriately: 
Oliver Ales and The Pratt Street Ale House are honored to participate by offering our 3 year round session beers (Blonde Ale 4.3%, Dark Horse Mild 4% & Bishop's Breakfast 4.4%) for $3/pint on the day.
