The Super Bowl is at least a four-hour event which calls for a "session" beer. Session beers are defined by the amount of time you can spend drinking them and are beers that are moderate in strength. The following is a list of 10 sessionable beers that will do quite well on Super Bowl Sunday.


1. Miller High Life: A simple American standard lager.

2. Reissdorf Kölsch: A delicate, high-end hybrid from Cologne, Germany.

3. Blue Point Toasted Lager: Toasty and quenching but so drinkable. 

4. Brooklyn Brewery Brooklyn Lager: More hoppy and a bit sweeter than the Blue Point Toasted Lager.

5. Palm Belgian Pale Ale: A simple, straightforward Belgian session ale. 

6. Allagash White Ale: Light, quenching, and super sessionable. 

7. Radeberger Pilsner: Dry, crisp, and classically golden. 

8. Guinness Dry Stout: 125 calories for a 12-ounce can that is 4.2% alcohol by volume while still full-flavored.

9. Victory Prima Pils: Snappy, hoppy, and All-American from Pennsylvania.

10. Samuel Smith Nut Brown Ale: Smooth and round with very approachable roast and fruit.
