Craft Beer

Beer is the most popular alcoholic beverage in America and the craft beer movement has only continued to grow since the 1970s. A brewery is defined as “craft” if it’s independent of outside corporate ownership, produces fewer than six million barrels each year and uses either traditional or innovative ingredients. There are strong craft brewing cultures across the country, but Portland, Oregon is home to more breweries than any other city.

Outstanding Craft ‘Session’ Beers for Your July Fourth BBQ
Done properly, day drinking should be a marathon—not a sprint. But if you’re cracking a traditional craft beer this July Fourth—many of which touch 7 or 8 percent alcohol-by-volume (ABV)—you’re going to struggle to stay up for the fireworks. That’s because one pint of an 8 percent ABV beer packs more booze than a double bourbon. (If you don’t trust our math, here’s a handy drink calculator.) Session beers are the solution. Packing all the flavor of your favorite craft offerings but with as little as half the alcohol, the “sessionable” beers on this list will buoy your holiday rather than weigh it down. — Markham Heid
