Saturday was the 2nd annual SessionFest, with dozens of breweries providing lower-alcohol beers to local beer fans, all to benefit Bike East Bay. "Session" beers are ones that are lower in alcohol, so you can drink more of them in one session without getting totally drunk. There's no strict definition, but it generally means less than 4.5% ABV (Alcohol By Volume).
I started the day volunteering at the free valet bike-parking station. We filled up pretty quickly with about 150 bikes, and could have used even more space. Great to see so many people riding and walking to the event. Then it was time to wander, sample lots of different beers, and dog- and people-watch. It was perfect weather; the morning fog burned off, but kept it from getting too warm. A hella fun event, and if you like beer, hella recommended.
