Baird Beer & Taproom Events Bulletin 2009 #8

Dear Taproom Friend & Baird Beer Enthusiast:

The dawn of spring in Japan means cherry blossom viewing which means outdoor fun with friends enjoying good food and fine libations. The Fishmarket Taproom in Numazu will be hosting its own outdoor Hanami party this coming Sunday, March 29. The venue is the Minato-Guchi Koen which is a park just a couple hundred meters down the road (toward the bay) from the Fishmarket Taproom. In addition to serving a great array of picnic food, we will be pouring three Baird Beers (Wheat King Ale, Teikoku IPA and a special sneak preview of this year’s Four Sisters Spring Bock). The event kicks off at noon and will run until 4:00 or 5:00 pm.

Event: Fishmarket Taproom Hanami Party
When: Sunday, March 29 (noon – late afternoon)
Where: Minato-Guchi Koen in Numazu (200 meters down the road from the Fishmarket Taproom)
Food: All-you-can-eat picnic buffet
Drink: All-you-can-drink Beer (Wheat King Ale, Teikoku IPA, Four Sisters Spring Bock); non-alcoholic beverages
Price: Adults 3,000 yen; Children free

If you plan on attending please send us an email at either or so that we can get a decent gauge of the overall numbers. We will be gathering at the park at noon. In case of extremely inclement weather, we will be relocating to the Fishmarket Taproom. We hope you can join us and meet Chris Poel, our new lead brewer who begins work in April. Be sure to bring the kids as lots of young ones will be running around having a ball.

Also, please note that the Fishmarket Taproom will thus be closed on Sunday, March 29. The Fishmarket Taproom also will be closed Monday, March 30 through Wednesday, April 1 due to kitchen and bar rennovations that we are undertaking. We will open again, with a fresh new kitchen and beer dispense system, on Thursday, April 2.
