Holiday Season Release: Jubilation Ale!

Dear Taproom Friend & Baird Beer Enthusiast:

The year-end holiday season is upon us once again. As always we take this occasion as opportunity to recognize and celebrate the numerous blessings of life. As brewers, we like to eulogize these blessings in liquid form each December with the release of our special Jubilation Ale.

Jubilation Ale (ABV 7%):

This malty rich, festively red-hued ale derives its special character primarily from the addition of two wonderful local ingredients: (1) fully ripened and freshly picked figs (ichijiku) and (2) cinnamon twigs culled from a 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 will be available on draught and in bottles (633 ml) throughout Japan beginning Saturday, December 18. Consumer purchases of bottles direct from the brewery are possible through our online E-Shop: (

Holiday Events at our Taprooms:
There is no place where you can better enjoy the jubilant spirit and warm camaraderie of the holiday season than at a cozy beer pub. And wonderful holiday cuisine? We have that for you also.

*Numazu Fishmarket Taproom:
Our chef will be preparing a gorgeous Christmas meal to be served both on Christmas eve (December 24 from 7:30 pm) and Christmas day (December 25 from 7:00 pm). The full meal costs 3,500 yen and reservations are required.

*Nakameguro Taproom:
Wonderful Christmas dishes will be served from December 23 (national holiday) through Christmas day. You can choose your dishes a la carte and match them with the beers of your preference. Reservations are not required.

New Year’s Eve countdown parties will be held on Friday, December 31 at both our Numazu Fishmarket and Nakameguro Taprooms (the Harajuku Taproom will be closed). Event details will be released early next week. The Harajuku Taproom will be open from January 1 for all of you who need refurbishment after an O-shogatsu visit to the nearby Meiji Shrine.

Happy Holidays!
