Notch Session Pils salutes the unfiltered pale lagers of the Czech Republic: crisp, herbal, and hoppy. The Czech culture is a beer culture - drinking more beer per capita than any other nation. And their beer of choice is the low gravity, unfiltered and unpasteurized Pilsner, known as "workers" or "tap" beer. In the end, Czech Pilsner serves the same function as Brit Session Beer - lower ABV, great flavor, and built for multiple pints.View all products by Notch BrewingCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

Notch Brewing boasts an impressive Biergarten at their brewery on the North shore of Massachusetts, which is a destination for craft beer drinkers from near and far. When Notch was established in 2010, it was the only craft brewery focused solely on session beers. It specializes in brewing session styles from England, Germany, the Czech Republic, and Belgium. Centuries ago water was unsafe to drink, therefore, laborers working all day in the fields turned to session or “table beer" for refreshment. Session beers are essentially beers that are 4.5% alcohol by volume (ABV) and below.
