Dear Taproom Friend & Baird Beer Enthusiast:
The sultry heat and torporific humidity of a Japan summer are heavily upon us. Fret not, though, for the most refreshing and revitalizing antidote to this seasonal languor is being released tomorrow: Baird Cool Breeze Pils 2009.
Cool Breeze Pils 2009 (ABV 5.5%):
Brewed annually, Cool Breeze Pils is Bohemian in style, cleanly malty in body, coquettishly floral and spicy in aroma, and crisply dry in its snappy bitter finish. Cool Breeze Pils registers on the imbiber like a fresh ocean breeze does on the perspiring body of a mid-afternoon sunbather. Cool Breeze Pils is dry-hopped in tank, unfiltered, and re-fermented and naturally carbonated in package where it has undergone a 6-month maturation. The result, we believe, pays handsome tribute to the glorious history of this storied lager beer style.
Cool Breeze Pils begins pouring from the taps of our Taprooms in Numazu and Nakameguro, as well as at other fine beer establishments throughout Japan, on Friday, July 24. 633 ml bottles also are available for purchase through our fine network of Baird Beer retailing liquor stores in Japan. Also, we have lagered a small portion of bottles from the 2008 batch of Cool Breeze Pils for vertical taste comparison. We highly recommend this fun and instructive method of comparison.
