Lake Michigan, IMO.
The greatness of this beer is in its first descriptive word: Session.
Session beers offer sustained drinking: typically your Millers and Lone Stars of the beer world. It implies that one or two or a drinker's dozen won't work you over during tailgate season. The common denominator of these types of beer is the low ABV -- there for sustained drinking without a trip to the emergency room, and then eventually, County. But typically, you give up flavor in lieu of extending your drinking session.
But North Peak -- and recently, other Midwest brewers like Founders -- have developed a way to combine the greatness of these two ideas. A session IPA is exactly what one would prefer when watching the sun take 48 hours to set on Lake Michigan, as I was attempting to do here before the northern summer chill took over my sensibilities.
Beer tastes infinitely better on the lake, as it turns out. Growing up, I didn't have the luxury of partaking in this ritual. We could only take our beer to the desert and start a fire -- and in place of a lake, its a suitable replacement -- but let me remind you, fire does not have the same thirst-invoking qualities.
Therefore, Lake Michigan, IMO.
As in, find a session craft beer and a lake. A warm one.
