May is Mild.

American Mild Month

Throughout the United States, throughout the month of May, it's American Mild Month.

An American Mild Ale is NOT over-alcohol'd; nor spiced or sour; nor an IPA.

It IS "a restrained, darkish ale, with gentle hopping and a clean finish so that the malt and what hops are present, shine through," 4.5% alcohol-by-volume or less.

An American Mild Ale is a 'session' 'craft' ale, thank you. And I think I'd like another, please.

Mild Ale served cask-conditioned, pulled via handpump, during American Mild Month, at Wrecking Bar Brewpub, Atlanta (Little 5 Points), Georgia. *

  • Find out if a brewery in your area is brewing an American Mild Ale in May. Read more at: www.mildmonth.com. And if your local brewery/brewpub isn't (gasp), give it a nudge.
  • Alistair Reece, the creator of American Mild Month, wrote "Hail Mild Month!" at his blog, Fuggled.
  • * I wrote "May is American Mild Month. Will Georgia brewers participate?" because Georgia is YFGF's 'neck-of-the-woods.' In the state, so far, three brewpubs are serving mild this month: HopStix (in Chamblee), Wrecking Bar (in Little 5 Points, Atlanta), and Twains Brewpub & Billiards (in Decatur). Photos: here.
  • In 2016, Lew Bryson wrote, "Once Again, American Mild Month is May," at his blog, The Session Beer Project.
  • In 2015, Jeff Alworth asked, "Can a Mild Ale make it America?", in All About Beer.
  • A few photos from the inaugural American Mild Month, in 2015: here.
