I tend to brew nothing but session beers (eg, OG in the the 1040s), and resort to scaling down big recipes down so that I can have a session alternative. It is nice, then, that session beers are starting to get some attention. For a while there was the Imperial-this-&-that rage, so I am glad that some breweries are making good low alcohol beers. http://splendidtable.publicradio.org/listings/101113/
