When beer guys talk, they'll sometimes drop the word "sessionable," referring to a beer that is easy to drink, usually not too hoppy, not too bitter, and not too high in alcohol. 

For its first beer, the newly formed Charleston Brewery District's goal was to make a session beer, using Bee Well honey, seashore black rye and American-grown malt and  hops.

The district organically grew out of eight breweries opening near each other on the Charleston peninsula, beginning at Palmetto on Huger Street up to Lo-Fi at the Spruill Avenue intersection. They first proposed the idea at a meeting in January
