WHAT IS SESSIONABLE?
Sessionable is a taphouse in Portland, OR specializing in lower ABV styles of beer. We’ve found the perfect space for our vision at 3588 SE Division. Our rotating tap model keeps our offering fresh and allows for us to present beer from smaller local breweries. We also offer small plate foods as well as a selection of local liquor.
WHAT ARE SESSIONABLE BEERS?
Sessionable beers are any which have low ABVs (in the 2-5 percent range). This lower alcohol content means that beer lovers and aficionados can imbibe a couple of rounds without the level of intoxication that accompanies higher octane beers.* Ideally, sessionable beers are light enough to be enjoyed with food and conversation without sacrificing flavor.
* This doesn’t mean you can drink irresponsibly and drive home or expect an immaculate liver. Don’t be stupid – they still have alcohol and all that entails.
WHY THESE BEERS AND NOT IIPAS, IMPERIAL STOUTS, ETC.?
Nothing against other kinds of beer: we love all kinds. From heady sour beers to plain old Pabst in a can, we enjoy the whole range – we brew it, drink it, judge it in competitions, we’re even giving up our day jobs to start a taphouse. And while we like the aggressive, high ABV, hoppy beers that dominate the scene in Portland, we decided we’d try something different that isn’t really well-represented in the Pacific Northwest’s beer scene.
So, if you’re looking for a place serving mainly those bold, grab-you-by-the-collar sorts of beers, we’d be happy to recommend a few great ones in the Portland metro area (you might even see us there). If you’re looking for a place where you can have a couple of pints and a snack with some friends and not have to hit the snooze button eight times the following morning, check us out. That being said, we will also offer select ‘after-session’ beers for special kegs, which will have higher ABV.
WHAT KIND OF FOOD GOES ALONG WITH SESSIONABLE BEERS?
Practically anything, yet we’re working with local purveyors to bring you the highest quality, local small plates available. Please select “Food” from the menu to view our offerings.
