Lucky 7 Stout Week @ Fishmarket Taproom (March 17 – 22)

Dear Taproom Friend & Baird Beer Enthusiast:

March 17 is the Irish holiday St. Patrick’s Day. We take this occasion every year as an excuse to celebrate a beer style long associated with Ireland: Stout. Stout, of course, is a wonderful pitch-black ale that enjoys many stylistic manifestations. We serve up seven different interpretations of Stout during our week-long celebration which we call Lucky 7 Stout Week.

Lucky 7 Stout Week @ Numazu Fishmarket Taproom (Wed. March 17 – Mon. March 22):

This year’s Stout selection is as follows:

Shimaguni Stout
Mama’s Milk Stout (served on hand-pump)
Midnight Oil Export Stout 2010
Great American Stout
Citrus Wheat Stout
Morning Coffee Stout 2008
Morning Coffee Stout 2010
In addition to these Stout selections, we also will be honoring the Irish with the 2010 Real Ale debut of Luck of the Irish Red Ale. Special Lucky 7 Stout Cards, which include punches for all seven seasonal Stouts will be available for purchase and use during the week (Pint cards @ 5,000 yen; Half-pint cards @3,500 yen). Enthusiasts who purchase and complete a card during the week will be entered into an end-of-the-week raffle in which seven Baird Beer prizes will be awarded. The lucky 7 prizes to be awarded are:

Fishmarket Taproom Nonbei Pint Drink Card
Fishmarket Taproom Nonbei Half-pint Card
Shimaguni Stout (360 ml) 6-Pack
Midnight Oil Export Stout (633 ml) 4-Pack
Shimaguni Stout T-Shirt
Set of two Baird Beer logo glasses (pint & half-pint)
Set of two posters (Shimaguni Stout & Baird Beer logo)
Great Irish- and Stout-inspired cuisine, of course, will be served up by the Fishmarket Taproom kitchen during the week. A special Lucky 7 Stout Week food menu will include the following:

Irish Beef Stew
Roast Beef
Potato Gratin
Traditional Fish & Chips
Fisherman’s Seafood Pasta
English Cheese Plate
Stout Cake & Chocolate Platter
Warm Irish-style camaraderie and revelry will also be in abundance all week long. Please note that the final day, Monday, March 22, is a Japan national holiday and thus the Fishmarket Taproom will be opening its doors at noon. For all you Tokyo denizens who have not made the Numazu pilgrimage recently, this represents a great chance! We look forward to seeing and drinking/eating with all of you.
