Summer is the perfect season to session. Warmer, longer days pair perfectly with lighter “session” beers.  Many people, from the novice beer ponger to the uber beer geek, can appreciate great beer and are now discerning between lighter craft session beers and macro beer. While many of these fine brews are light in color and lower in alcohol, they represent a vast spectrum of ingredients and flavor unlike many of the macro brands.

Blitz-Ladd’s Summer Session is designed to bridge the gap between drinkability and complexity. At this unique event, Portland’s premier sports bar is showcasing twenty of the region’s best session beers. Blitz Ladd Sports Bar offers a perfect venue for soaking in the summer sun while enjoying the tail-end of Oregon Craft Beer Month. Their outdoor patio will be transformed into a festival atmosphere where beer lovers can taste 20 lagers, pilsners, kolschs, pales and other light “session” beers that may be lighter in color and lower in alcohol, but offer huge flavor and thirst quenching drinkability.

Blitz Summer Session Saturday July 30, 1pm - 10pm Admission is $5, or free with an Oregon Brewers Festival, or other festival or personal cup. Tasting tickets are $1. 3 tickets for full cup. Ages 21 and over.
