What’s the Best Craft Lager? Full Sail Brewing Company’s Session Premium

The Full Pint recently held a poll asking craft beer lovers: What’s the Best Craft Lager? Thousands responded and one beer came out on top, Full Sail’s Session Lager. “We are very grateful for the support in voting Session Premium Lager as the Best Craft Lager beer. When we came up with the idea behind Session six years ago we felt that there was a place in craft beer for a balanced, refreshing all malt lager that was a celebration of the kind of pre-prohibition lagers America’s breweries used to brew. We are very happy to see that other craft beer drinkers think so too,” said Irene Firmat, Full Sail Brewing’s Founder and CEO.

“As an employee owned, independent brewery we have the opportunity to pursue our creative vision and Session was an outcome of that freedom. While all the market seemed to be trending toward extreme, very hoppy beers, we brewed a beer that went directly against that trend. And now six years after Session’s first release we are very gratified to see that we did create a beer that many others appreciate as well. Thanks to all The Full Pint readers and everyone who voted for Session – they keep brewing fun,” added Firmat.

Since its release in 2005, Session Premium lager has earned seven gold medals. In 2007 it was named The World’s Best Premium Lager at the World Beer Awards and America’s Best Premium Lager at the 2010 World Beer Awards. Session has truly earned itself a place at the bar. Not to mention the barbeque. Of course, you are the ultimate judge, but click here to check out a full list of Session’s awards and accolades.
