Boozy brews aren’t the only ones with flavor: From toned-down IPAs to barrel-aged beauties, these low-ABV brews provide respite from barn-burning bottles.
Two Brothers Long Haul
Proving that barrel aging isn’t just for big beers, Two Brothers steeps its 4.2%-ABV ale in French foudres for at least four weeks, lending a light oakiness to this crisp brew.
North Peak Wanderer Session India Pale Ale
The name says it all: This IPA-turned-session-beer packs pine and citrus flavors from four different hops, and boasts a slight 4.2% ABV.
Two Beers Trailhead India Style Session Ale
This Seattle brewery kept its punchy regional hop flavors, but swapped the ubiquitous bomber and alcohol warmth for 12-ounce cans and a light 4.8% ABV.
Notch Session Pils
This session-only brewery in Boston crafts two styles, but we especially like the bready malts, hop bite and 4.0% ABV of its Czech-style pilsner.
Flying Dog-The Brewer’s Art Table for Two
Two Maryland brewing powerhouses teamed up this summer for this quiet collaboration, a fruity, 5%-ABV Belgian-style blond brewed with wildflower honey.
