Baseball is back, and what better way to christen your team's season opener than by kicking back on Opening Day with some ice-cold beer? Here are six beers for MLB’s Opening Day that'll go down nice and smooth at your first party of the year. They're fairly widely available and shouldn't cost more than $6 or $10 for a sixer.

What it is: Session Lager is an American pilsner modeled on pre-prohibition-style brews. As the past winner of the World Beer Awards' “Best Premium Lager” and the 2008 Gold Winner at the Great American Beer Fest, Session Lager is definitely worthy to be among your six beers for MLB’s Opening Day.

Why you'll love it: If your plans for the game include having more than a few beers, there's something you'll need to keep in mind (besides which one of your buds you'll sucker into driving you home): “Sessionability” is beer-geek lingo for a beer that's tasty when drunk in quantity, requiring it to have a lower alcohol content and a light enough flavor to not overwhelm the taste buds. Perfect for a drinking “session,” Session Lager lives up to its name with a light flavor and mouth-feel, and the lower alcohol content means that even if the game goes extra innings, you can keep drinking and still remember the score tomorrow.
