Hood River, Oregon – “Ten years ago Full Sail introduced Session Lager, and it reflected our view that beers should be inclusive and celebrate camaraderie without extremes or gimmicks. Grateful that many beer lovers agree with us, and with “sessionable” beers suddenly all the rage, there’s never been a better time to expand Session’s universal appeal. Our new Session Series gives Session fans three additional ways to enjoy “Session-ability” as their tastes (and the weather) changes,” said Irene Firmat, Full Sail Brewing Company’s CEO & Founder.
First in the line-up is Session Export, brewed in the Dortmunder Export lager style. Export pours a deep golden color and imported hop varieties impart noble hop aromas with subtle herbal and hop spice notes. Hop bitterness and malt sweetness are balanced with a firm, smooth, mineral/malt character and clean finish. So rich, so elegant, so well-traveled - Imported all the way from Hood River, Oregon, Session Export is available in 12-packs and on draft from winter to spring. ABV 5.8% IBU 28
Since the launch in 2005 Full Sail’s Session beers have earned a slew of shiny awards and trophies including 35 gold medals. Recently, Full Sail’s Session lagers swept the 2014 World Beer Championships with each beer earning top honors including a gold medal for both Session Premium Lager and the newly released Session Export. Session Fest, Session Black and Session IPA were honored with silver medals. After all, why have a beer when you could have a Session?
