Session Beers That Won't Destroy You

You can enjoy these excellent low-ABV craft brews all day without getting so drunk you'll ruin your life

Session Beers That Won't Destroy You

Cloudwater US Light Comet

Strength: 3.6% ABV (light ale)

How’s it taste? Fruity. Mostly grapefruit, with some pepperiness in there too.

It’ll stop you getting so boozed that you… Storm away from a picnic screaming “and what’s more, Giles, I bet you haven’t even read Chilcot!”

Session Beers That Won't Destroy You 1

Northern Monk Eternal Darkness

Strength: 4.1% ABV (black IPA)

How’s it taste? Stronger than it is. Coffee notes and bitterness.

It’ll stop you… Thrusting your debut-novel manuscript into the face of pals, declaring “I’m sure you’ll agree it shows a sharper eye than the equivalent McEwan.”

Session Beers That Won't Destroy You 2

Siren Calypso

Strength: 4% ABV (Berliner weisse)

How’s it taste? Sour, citrusy and sharp. Like Haribo!

It’ll stop you… Sending a bridge-burning text to your line manager demanding imminent talks about “not just my own prospects, Paul, but your glaring inadequacies as a figurehead for the department.”

Session Beers That Won't Destroy You 3

Brewdog Dead Pony Club

Strength: 3.8% ABV (pale ale)

How’s it taste? Fuller-bodied than the others mentioned here. Hoppy and limey.

It’ll stop you… Bellowing “vanity is the plague of our times!”, deleting all forms of social media, then throwing your iPhone into a lake.

Session Beers That Won't Destroy You 4

The Kernel Table Beer

Strength: 3.2% ABV (pale ale)

How’s it taste? Light, fresh and creamy. Well-balanced: not too sweet or bitter.

It’ll stop you… Tearfully admitting that yes, you did book a week off work just so you could play on the SNES you found in the loft.
