2019 GABF Guided Routes | Lagers & Session Beers to Try at GABF

2019 GABF Guided Routes | Lagers & Session Beers to Try at GABF

This was made possible by Molly’s Spirits, your go-to stop for some of the best local and national beer drops throughout GABF week and beyond!

For the past two months, our staff has been researching styles for each beer pouring at the Great American Beer Festival. As part of that research, we’ve sifted through that list of beers to bring you a series of themed routes to help you plan for your GABF based on various styles and flavors.


2019 GABF Routes:


Now we invite you to explore some of the most intriguing crispy bois, Marzens, Session IPAs, table beers, and general crushers that we know will be pouring at GABF. Because after drinking barrel-aged stouts and enamel stripping sours you’re going to need a palate cleanser. Also while not every single one of these are under 5% ABV like the technical definition of a session beer, they’re pretty dang close and they’re all sessionable in mindset.
