Default What is your favorite style of beer for "large volume sessions?

What is your favorite beer style to just sit down and consume a substantial amount?

IPA with Chinook and simcoe! I think they call me a hop head.

Definitely a session beer. Probably an English one. I would usually go towards an Ordinary Bitter or Mild. But a Scottish Shilling, or a Petite Saison, or Tafelbier, any other beer in the 3-3.8% ABV range and I'm good to go.

Only the kind that comes in brown bottles. Really like that beer.

My favorite Thursday evening beer (I work Mon-Thurs, so that's my big drinking night), is Molson. Don't know why, I just love the stuff. I like my IPAs and porters, too, but Molson is just my perfect "unwinding after a week of babysitting a bunch of welders" beer.

A real Saison, pale ale or standard IPA.

Milk stout for me. Nothing over like 5.5% but I love those sweet milk stouts and can't get enough of them.

A lighter, crisper american pale ale (summit extra pale ale for example), British ordinary bitter, british dark mild.....

And, of course, there is always Milwaukee's Best Light if I am looking at a 20 beer day camping or something

Definitely. A cream/blonde ale - I made a bunch of variations on a SMASH last year. Some base malt to an OG of 1.040 with about 35ish IBU of Centennial at 60. The winner last year was definitely Golden Promise. The Golden Promise keg was gone in three weeks. Will try it again this summer with a whole new lineup, including Fawcett Optic.
