Wishing You a Jubilant Holiday Season!
Dear Taproom Friend & Baird Beer Enthusiast:
Life is a fleeting thing. Each of us is here but a very short time. The older we get, the more clearly we comprehend this inexorable reality. And despite the sometimes awful travails and the always regular monotony of life, it remains a mysteriously beautiful thing. The end-of-the-year holiday season provides wonderful occasion for reflection and appreciation of the joy of living.
At Baird Brewing, 0ur appreciation of this joy is manifested in a celebratory Christmas-New Year season holiday ale which we call Jubilation Ale.
New Baird Beer Seasonal Releases:
*Jubilation Ale (ABV 7.5%):
This malty rich, festively red-hued ale derives its special character primarily from the addition of two wonderful indigenous ingredients: (1) fully ripened Japanse figs (ichijiku) and (2) cinnamon twigs culled from a local Japanese nikki tree. The full bodied character combined with the attendant alcohol strength will warm the flesh just as it brings jubilation to the soul.
Jubilation Ale is available for immediate release in both kegs and bottles (360 ml). It begins pouring at our Taproom taps on Thursday, December 20.
