2022 GABF Guided Routes | Lagers & Session Beers to Try at GABF

2022 GABF Guided Routes | Lagers & Session Beers to Try at GABF

The Great American Beer Festival is nearly upon us! And as we always do, each year at PorchDrinking, we’re here to help you navigate the vast lineup of beers to help with planning your route at the fest. As part of that research, we’ve sifted through every beer pouring at this year’s event to bring you a series of themed routes to help you plan for your GABF based on various styles and flavors.


To ease into the week, we thought we’d start with 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. Stay tuned as we’ll be bringing you more guided routes throughout the week.
